A YOUNG blind man has spoken of his devastation after he was attacked and had his beloved puppy stolen

It happened last night (Monday) when Mohammed Atta, 24, was walking his dog on Springfield Avenue in the Scholemoor area of Bradford. 

Mohammed was with a friend, who was holding the puppy when a car "full of lads" pulled up.

The pair were attacked with what Mohammed thinks was a cricket or baseball bat before the puppy was taken. 

York Press:

He'd only had the pup, a 14-week-old American Bully, since last Friday and is desperate to get her back. 

Mohammed said: "My whole life and my world revolve around my dogs.

"I'm devastated. I can't sleep, my mind is not at rest."

He said the last thing he heard was his puppy yelping as she was stolen. 

"It's hurting that my dog is not here by my side.

"I'll do anything to get my baby girl home. I'm worried sick. I just can't believe this has happened to me."

To make the situation worse, the puppy is not microchipped and the appointment was booked for Wednesday. 

"Please whoever has her just bring her home safe to me," Mohammed pleaded.
