Andrey Egorov denies any involvement with Epping dog attack
The trial of a man accused of allowing his dog to attack a jogger is set to start today.
Andrey Egorov, of Beaconfield Road in Epping, faces a charge of owning a dog which was allowed to be dangerously out of control in public place and cause injury.
The 46-year-old is accused of failing to prevent his dog from attacking a man when walking the pet without a lead in Shaftesbury Road on March 26.
Mr Egorov denies the charges against him.
His lawyer said his client believes that he was wrongly picked out of a police line-up.
During the incident 28-year-old Joel Goodman received serious injuries to his scrotum.
The music teacher from Epping had to undergo emergency surgery to save his testicle following the attack.
The trial will take place at Harlow Magistrates’ Court.
