A woman is to appear at Oxford Magistrates Court after an alleged dog attack. 

Charlotte Amber-Rose McCollin, 30, of no fixed address will be tried today, May 26, after a dog in care was seen to be out of control, allegedly attacking and injuring a woman. 

The incident took place on August 27 in 2020 at Sandy Lane in Oxford and the dog was described as a 'bully breed cross' of 'stocky build and brown in colour'.

The charge was brought under section 3(1) of the 1991 Dangerous Dogs Act. 

This states, in summary, that if any dog is dangerously out of control in any place, including all private property, the owner, or person for the time being in charge of the dog, is guilty of a summary offence.

This means that if found guilty, McCollin could be imprisoned for a term not exceeding six months or an unlimited fine.
