Animal control officers have hit a roadblock in their search for two dogs involved in an attack in northeast D.C. Friday night.
A building surveillance camera shows two children jumping on the roof of a car to escape the dogs. They were not hurt, but a man who tried to help them was bitten in the hand and may have nerve damage.
The search for the dogs is at a standstill.
“We have some tips from neighbors about where the dogs’ owner lived,” Molly Lunaris, of the D.C. Department of Health Animal Program, told News4's Darcy Spencer. “The building that they pointed us to we’ve been able to speak to some residents there and they’ve all denied ownership. We don’t have any idea where the dogs are located or who their owner may be.”
If the dogs are found, they could be euthanized. The owner could face criminal charges.
