A man has been arrested after a dog attack that left an 11-year-old girl with serious injuries.
Ana Paun suffered shoulder and arm injuries in the attack by an American bully XL and Staffordshire bull terrier crossbreed in Bordesley Green, Birmingham, on Saturday.
Two other men were also injured in the attack after the dog broke free from its collar twice.
A West Midlands police spokesperson said: “A 60-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possessing a dog dangerously out of control. He has been bailed with conditions while inquiries continue.”
The force confirmed that the dog remained in secure kennels.
The incident prompted the home secretary, Suella Braverman, to seek “urgent advice” on whether the breed should be banned.
