‘Racist’ Rotty thug’s ma­chete street at­tack

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A DOG that “doesn’t like black peo­ple” sparked a ter­ri­fy­ing ma­chete at­tack on a Nige­rian man.

Male nurse Pa­trick Ogunobo, 57, was nipped at by the un­leashed Rot­tweiler near his home in Open­shaw, Gtr Manch­ester.

When he told the dog’s owner, Wolf Carter ( above) that it should be on a lead, the thug screamed racist abuse at him be­fore pulling out a ma­chete and at­tack­ing him.

Mr Ogunobo stood his ground, grab­bing Carter’s wrist and wrestling the blade from him.

Po­lice later ar­rested Carter, who claimed his dog did not like black peo­ple be­cause a pre­vi­ous owner – a black man – had mis­treated it.

But Manch­ester Crown Court heard the 41-year-old loner’s po­lice in­ter­view was pep­pered with racist rants, de­scribed as “wor­ry­ing” and “bizarre”.

Carter was jailed for 18 months af­ter he was found guilty of pos­sess­ing an of­fen­sive weapon in a trial ear­lier this year.

He was not charged with any of­fence in con­nec­tion with the dog’s be­hav­iour.
