A dog owner has been sent to jail for a year after his dog was allowed to attack four people.

Piotr Komedera, 42, appeared before Northampton Magistrates' Court last week to face four charges of having a Belgian Shepherd called Tina that was dangerously out of control in Ollis Close, where the defendant lived.

On July 17 last year, Tina attacked two members of the public as well as the two police officers who were helping to deal with the incident, PC Josh Coles and DC Sharon Conn, who suffered minor injuries.

Komedera pleaded guilty to the four offences under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991.

The court heard he had failed to heed previous warnings to muzzle the dog. He was jailed for 52 weeks and ordered to pay compensation to DC Conn of £1,200 and £100 to each of the other victims.
