Officers responded to a report of a dog bite at a park on Brookline Avenue at approximately 12:50 PM where a town employee was using a weed whacker on the field when he was charged by two Labrador and was bitten by one of the dogs on his left leg. He then proceeded to run from the dogs through the bushes, resulting in minor scratches on his arms in addition to the bite on his leg.
The victim declined medical attention from paramedics.
The dog was up to date on all of its rabies vaccinations but was still placed into a 10 day mandatory quarantine period conducted by the Brookline Health Department, and the owner was issued a citation for the attack.
At approximately 4:16 PM while on patrol around Beacon Street, officers recognized a suspect they knew to have an active warrant out of Waltham District Court for his arrest.
Officers contacted dispatch to confirm their suspicions about the active warrant, and after confirming the suspect was wanted, they placed him under arrest without incident.
