This week’s Richland County Crimestopper is asking the community to help in locating a dog that bit a 13-year old female as she was walking on 6th St. SE in Sidney at about 5PM on October 26, 2017. The Sidney Police Department received a report from Sidney Health Center that a 13-year old female had been brought to the hospital with a dog bite. Upon speaking to the victim, it was learned that she had turned off South Central Ave onto 6th St. SE and was walking eastbound. The victim stated that she had been walking for a few minutes on 6th St. SE when she saw a brown colored dog, that she believed was maybe a pit bull in a yard next to the sidewalk she was walking on. She did not notice the dog coming up behind her and was bit by the dog on the back of her leg. The dog then ran off and the victim did not see where the dog went. She then went home and was taken to the hospital by her family. The bite caused puncture wounds and bruising to the back of her right leg. The victim is not familiar with the area but feels she or the person that was with her could identify the dog if she saw it again.

It is very important that this dog is located so that it can be determined if the animal has had it proper rabies shots. Crimestoppers has been asked by the Richland County Health Department and Sidney Police Department to help located this brown dog that may be a pit bull type. The dog may be owned by someone living on 6th St. SE or close to the area. The victim will have to start a series of shots if authorities are unable to determine if the dog is current on it shots. Please contact Crimestopper, the Sidney Police Department at 406-433-2210 or the Richland County Health Department at 406-433-2207.
