Court orders destruction of dogs that attacked Bromley PCSO in St Mary Cray
TWO dogs will be destroyed after they attacked a Bromley PCSO who was on foot patrol in St Mary Cray.
The incident happened when the 23-year-old female officer from the Cray Valley West Safer Neighbourhood Team was in Rookery Gardens on December 5 last year.
At 12.15pm two Border terrier dogs ran out from an alleyway beside a house and began to attack her, biting her multiple times on her arms and legs, causing her to fall to the floor where the attack continued.
Members of the public rushed to help her, giving first aid and comforting the PCSO until an ambulance arrived.
She was taken to the Princess Royal University Hospital in Farnborough, where she received treatment to a number of bite wounds and scratches.
At Bromley Magistrates’ Court the owner of the dogs, Lavinia Lee, aged 32, of Rookery Gardens, was convicted of having dogs dangerously out of control in a public place and was fined £100 and ordered to pay compensation of £250.
The court ordered both of the dogs be destroyed.
