Reports are that the man was walking with a friend from a game, when the dogs ran from their owners premises.

The victim who spoke to our news team, said that the dogs were apparently familiar with his friend, but not him. "Dem jus' jump on me and start to bite me up all over my body. Me get bite on my hand, foot and groin. It seem as if the dog dem single me out, my friend was trying to help me, but the dogs were too aggressive," he said.

Our news team understands that the traumatised man went through a minor surgical procedure to repair the damage to his testicles. "While I was being attacked I didn't even know that di dogs dem bite me in my groin, It was afterwards that I saw the blood, so I got some stitches. I was so nervous and frightened. Di dog tore the skin off completely," the victim told The Weekend Star.

The matter has not been reported to the police, as the man said that the dogs' owner is someone known to him and they are trying to work out the matter amicably.

He said he is worried that the damage to his testicles will create future problems. "I am trying to get over it and my doctor said things will be fine, but I am to go back for another appointment," the man said.
