A MAN had cash and his mobile phone stolen after being mugged in Accrington.

The victim was also bitten by a dog during the incident in the early hours of this morning.

Police were called to Ranger Street at around 2.45am after two men, who had an Alsatian and pitbull-type dog with them, had stolen the money and phone from the man.

The victim was thought to be walking home after a night out.

The man suffered minor leg injuries as a result of the dog bite.

Minor injuries? Are you bloody daft or just a pure pathetic idiot?!? The man your talking about was mugged by 3 guys and 3 dogs.. 2 Alsatians and 1 pitbull.. he was being attatcked by dogs and being battered at the same time but yet you type this bloody article and state he has suffered minor injuries. Well why don't you let me attack you with 2 more guys and 3 dogs and lets see if you suffer minor injuries. The person that was attacked has been in hospital over night and has some serious injuries so stop stating your opinions and state some facts. If the attack lasted 2/3 minutes more he would have been a lot worse and maybe not even alive and yes that's according to the police. Bet if it was a white man who was attacked you would not have said 'minor injuries' would you? So I suggest you do you reporting correctly or just keep you nonsense to yourself.

It was not a mugging, was protecting the dog. Man beats dog after she smells him then the Asian man beats the dog with an object, the owner of the dog gose to get he's dog and the man still beats the dog so then the owner starts to fight. There was 1 dog and 2 people. Am sure eny body would protect there dog after growing up with the dog and there was no money and for the phone it's down a grate where it happend
