The victim (who has since been transferred to another unnamed hospital) is in a stable condition with potentially life changing injuries.

Police believe the incident happened in the Woodlands Road area of Earlswood, near Redhill, and there will be an increased police presence in the area as officers seek to establish more details.

Detective Inspector Jackie Elkins said:


“While clearly a shocking incident, I want to be reassure the community that these men knew each other and there is no wider risk to the general public. I want to thank the local community for their support and assistance as we conduct a thorough investigation of what happened and bring those responsible to justice.

I would ask people who may know these men not to speculate publicly, but instead to contact us to help us build a picture of who they are and why this has happened.”

Anyone who has any information that could assist the investigation, either because they know the individuals involved, or because they witnessed something in the Woodlands road area of Earlswood last night, is asked to please contact Surrey Police on 101 (999 in an emergency) or http://surrey.police.uk/TellUsMore quoting reference PR/45190008252.

Appalling dog attack in Tilgate Park, Crawley

Dog left with ear half ripped off.

At around 12pm on Tuesday 16th of April an off-the -eash dog, reportedly a Dalmatian, was seen attacking another dog in Tilgate Park.

The owner of Ollie, the dog being attacked, had to intervene and physically drag the Dalmatian off.

According to the owner the lady in charge of the Dalmatian allegedly did nothing but shout its name.

She then apparently said:

‘I’m a professional dog walker, I know what I’m doing’ before walking off with the aggressive dog still off the leash.

Ollie was left with gushing blood from his ear which was half ripped off and his shaken owner rushed him to the vet for emergency treatment.

Ollie is now recovering from the attack.

The police were notified but as there was no information on who the lady was, no further action could be taken.

A Facebook appeal for information was started by Tilgate Councillor Francis Guidera the following morning and someone has already come forward with information which may be very helpful and will be passed on to the police.

Ollie’s owners, as if the distress of this experience wasn’t enough, were left with a £1000 bill leaving them with a sizeable excess to pay for the treatment which is ongoing due to the severity of poor Ollie’s injury.

Cllr Guidera said:

“I am absolutely disgusted by this. We have a dog and I can only imagine how distressing this must have been for Ollie and for his owners. Dogs are treated as part of the family and responsible dog walkers are very welcome in Tilgate Park. Irresponsible dog walkers, however, are absolutely not. If someone cannot control a dog, why on earth would they let it off the leash in what is likely the most popular public park in Sussex?”
