Dogs' owner faces prison for street attack

The owner of two dogs that savaged and seriously injured a woman could be jailed.
Paul Graham Roberts, 27, pleaded guilty in Hastings District Court yesterday to two charges of owning dogs that attacked and injured Sadee Lewis on February 2.

Ms Lewis, 23, had been walking along a street when the two dogs – an English bull terrier and a bull mastiff cross – began barking at her from the property where Roberts lived.
The court was told that Ms Lewis tried to cross the street to avoid the dogs but they ran through an opening and attacked her in the middle of the street.
Both dogs were found later and destroyed. MORE>> (but not much)
