Technician Attacked by PitBull

Topeka Police responded to two vicious dog calls Wednesday morning.
The first one happened at 9:20 at 230 SW 35th Terr. A gas technician was attempting to deliver paperwork to the homeowner when he was attacked by pit bulls. The dogs latched onto the man’s arm. He was able to fend them off until police arrived. The man was taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

“If this pit bull would have attacked a small child walking to school the child wouldn’t have had a chance. The only reason why this gentleman made it through was he was wearing heavy clothing and he was able to fend off the dog until we arrived,” said Cpl. Louis Cortez of the Topeka Police Department.

‘);”Anytime anyone gets bit by any dog it’s going to hurt. But some are worse than others. If they can just get away from it. Get something between them and the dog,” said Officer Linda Halford with Animal Control.

The city of Topeka requires that all pit bull owners have a permit.

    Yeh. Like… an Animal Control officer? Is that a good thing to put between the victims and the dogs?
    Guess not. It takes them at least three days to meander to the crime scene for a quick look around and leave.
