Man charged with dangerous dog offences after animals shot dead by police

A man has been charged with dangerous dog offences following an incident in Tower Hamlets, east London.

Louie Turnbull, 46, was charged on Tuesday with being the person/owner of a dog that was dangerously out of control and being in possession/custody of a dog whilst disqualified from owning or keeping a dog. 

On the same day, he also appeared in custody at Thames Magistrates’ Court. 

This comes after police officers were called just after 5pm on Sunday, May 7, to reports of a woman being attacked by a dog in Commercial Road, E14. 

Police located a woman who said two dogs had attacked her own dog. During the incident, she also suffered an injury to her leg, but did not require hospital treatment.  

Both animals were destroyed at the scene by officers, and the owner of the dogs was arrested. Taser, the Met Police said, was discharged. 

Police said the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards have conducted a thorough review of the incident, including all of the available body-worn footage, and are satisfied that there are no concerns around officer conduct.
