SFPD seek owner of dog that attacked person in Golden Gate Park

A female suspect fled Golden Gate Park after her dog seriously injured a person at the park earlier this month, police said.

The dog attack occurred at 9:37 a.m. on Feb. 8., according to police.

The suspect is being described as a white or Hispanic female, 5 feet 3 inches to 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 200 pounds. She had short black hair and was wearing thin-framed rectangular shaped glasses, police said.

The suspect fled in a 2006 white Ford Explorer with a license plate number ending in B694.

The victim was playing catch with his dogs when the suspect’s dog, an 80-pound male gray pit bull with a patch of white on its chest, attacked as the victim was retrieving a ball, police said.

The pit bull bit the victim on the right calf and the victim fell to the ground. The dog and victim were now facing each other and the victim put up his left arm to defend himself, according to police.

The dog bit and held on to the victim’s left forearm.

The victim punched the dog to get it to release its grip and the dog bit the victim’s right forearm, police said.

The suspect stopped the attack and promised to provide identification and proof of rabies vaccination but instead fled, according to police.
