NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 15/05/2017

A man has been arrested after setting his dog on the bar manager when asked to remove the animal from Greymouth's Railway Hotel.

A 25-year-old man was drinking at the bar with his dog when the victim asked him to take the dog outside, and allegedly assaulted him and set his dog on him resulting in bites to the head, face and arms.

He appeared in the Greymouth District Court on Saturday charged with several counts of serious assault, and is remanded in custody.

Other patrons tried to help when the man allegedly also attacked and set the dog on them.

The bar manager was taken to Grey Base Hospital with serious bite wounds.
