The horror exploded in Loughborough, Leicestershire, outside the Limehurst Academy on Bridge Street at around 2pm on January 24.

The lad was rushed to hospital after sustaining "cuts and bruises" to his stomach in the savage attack.

Cops have now released CCTV of a man they want to speak to following the attack, alleged to be from a Rottweiler-type dog.

A post about the incident was initially shared by the boy's relative on Facebook.

PC Sam Parr, investigating officer of Leicestershire Police, said: "I would like to speak to the man pictured about this incident.

"I believe he may have information that could assist my investigation.
