A Hatfield woman has appeared in court after her dangerously out-of-control attacked another woman.

Yasman Rashidi initially denied, but then pleaded guilty to being in charge of a dog that was dangerously out of control in Ellenbrook Fields, Hatfield, on July 10 last year.

St Albans Magistrates’ Court heard how the dog, an Alsatian cross known as Dexter, injured a member of the public near Walker Grove while being out of control.

Rashidi, 31, of Richards Street, was ordered to pay compensation of £240.

A Herts Police spokeswoman said: “The victim, a woman in her thirties, was bitten on her back and then also bitten on her waist which drew blood.”
