Dog Attacks Man in Eagle Rock: Police Searching for Owners

By City News Service

Police today are looking for anyone that can provide a description of the owner or owners of a dog that bit a man’s face in front of an Eagle Rock restaurant, causing extensive facial injuries.

Police have just the description that the mixed pit bull’s owner was an adult male, according to Officer Jenny Houser of the LAPD’s Media Relations Section.

It happened about 7 p.m. Thursday in front of Jersey Mike’s Subs at 2601 Colorado Blvd., Los Angeles police Sgt. C. Gomez said.

According to ABC7, bite victim Ian Alli — said to be in his early 20s — told police said he was collecting donations for a charity in front of the business when he saw two girls walking the dog and asked if the pit bull mix was friendly and was told it was.

When Alli knelt down to pet the dog, it bit him in the face, police said,

Alli immediately ran inside the restaurant for help and was taken to Glendale Adventist Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition, authorities said.

Investigators were accessing video from the scene to get a potential identity, Gomez said.

Anyone who witnessed the attack was asked to call the LAPD’s Northeast station at (323) 561-3211.
