Cat owner assaulted by dog owner

A PET owner whose cat was mauled to death by two dogs was then assaulted by the dogs’ owner.

The cat was in a basement courtyard in East Ascent, St Leonards, when it was attacked by two grey-coloured dogs, thought to be Staffordshire bull terriers.

The dogs had been off the lead and were with a man and a woman walking past the property.

When the cat owner pulled the dogs away and took them to the owner, he himself was attacked and kicked in the head.

The attacker is described as white, in his early 20s, 5ft 9ins tall, medium build with short blond hair, and was wearing a white t-shirt with large blue markings, grey jogging bottoms and white trainers.
