Duo's victim was savaged by a dog and sliced with a saw in West Bowling

TWO men have been jailed after a sustained attack at a Bradford flats complex in which their victim was savaged by a dog and sliced with a large saw.
Russell McCabe was left permanently scarred after he was set upon by Patrick Wilson and Lee Syms in the entrance foyer at the bedsits in New Cross Street, West Bowling.
Mr McCabe, who has mental health problems, was punched to the ground by Wilson and hit and kicked by both his assailants, prosecutor Abigail Langford told Bradford Crown Court today.
Syms then fetched a large saw that he used to slice into Mr McCabe's hand, between his thumb and his forefinger.
Wilson's dog, Sasha, joined in the attack, covering Mr McCabe with numerous bites, the court was told.
Wilson, 22, of Bingley Road, Saltaire, and Syms, 28, of Ash Tree, New Cross Street, pleaded guilty to unlawfully wounding Mr McCabe on December 14, 2014.
Wilson, who had previous convictions for robbery and battery, was jailed for 32 months.
He brought cannabis into the dock with him for the sentencing hearing.
Syms, with a conviction for possession of an offensive weapon, was imprisoned for two years.
