A dog owner is to appear before magistrates this morning (Friday, March 19) charged with four offences of having a dangerously out-of-control dog.

Piotr Komedera, 41, is due at Northampton Magistrates' Court after it was alleged his Belgian Shepherd injured four people on three separate occasions.

The charges relate to an incident in Ollis Close on July 7 last year when the dog, called Tina, injured Police Constable Josh Coles and Detective Constable Sharon Conn.

Another charge alleges the same dog had bitten a member of the public in Shelley Drive in July 2019.

No plea has yet been entered.
