A ROTTWEILER left a man with a fractured shoulder and broken arm in an attack on a South Yorkshire street.

The dog mauled its 66-year-old victim as he was walking his Maltese puppy along Broadway East, East Dene.

The puppy had to be put down following the attack after suffering a broken spine and head wounds.

A police spokesman said: “Officers believe that the rottweiler was led away by two young, white males up East Road in East Dene. The first youth was described as a 13 or 14-year-old and the second was thought to be a seven or eight-year-old.”
