‘Racist’ Rotty thug’s machete street attack
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.
