An image has emerged of a man who admitted owning a dangerous dog after an attack which left 10 people needing hospital treatment.
Unemployed Spencer Brown, 21, of St Leonards, East Sussex, pleaded guilty to six counts of owning a dog which was dangerously out of control in a public place, at Hastings Magistrates' Court.
Brown also admitted possession of cannabis and owning a dog dangerously out of control in a private place in St Leonards on May 16.
He was released on conditional bail to live at an address outside Sussex and will appear at Lewes Crown Court for sentencing on a date to be fixed.
Another man, 22, who was arrested at the scene on Sunday night, has been released without charge.
Police went to Marline Road in Hastings following a report that two dogs had escaped into the street and several people had been attacked. Eight people were initially reported to have been hurt, a figure that rose to 10.
When officers arrived, one of the dogs had already been captured by members of the public and was in a dog crate.
Sussex Police has applied for a destruction order for the dogs which are being held in secure kennels out of the county.
