Two men charged in relation to dog attack

The Calgary Police Service has charged two men following a serious dog attack that occurred last month.

At approximately 11:40 a.m., on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019, a woman in her 60s was walking near the intersection of 88 Avenue N.E., and 52 Street N.E., when she was approached by a large black dog. While attempting to flee from the dog, the woman fell, at which point the dog began to attack.

Once the victim was on the ground, two additional dogs joined the attack, causing bite marks and lacerations to the woman’s body. The woman was taken to hospital where she was treated and released. She continues to recover from her injuries.

On Thursday, Jan. 30, police issued a request for public assistance to help locate the witnesses that came to the victim’s aid. Several people came forward as a result of this request.

Police have charged Satnam DHALIWAL, 31, and Dharmender KHOSA, 26, with one count each of criminal negligence causing bodily harm. They are scheduled to appear in court on Friday, March 8, 2019.

The dogs remain in custody of Calgary Community Standards and are under review.

The Service would like to thank the media and the public for their assistance with this investigation.
