Unleashed Dog on Rivington Street Bites Man in Crotch
This dog tried to play fetch with a man’s stick.
Yesterday evening, an unleashed dog bit two people near the corner of Rivington and Essex Streets, including one man who suffered a crotch grab.
According to police, the dog ran up to the victim – near Welcome to the Johnsons – and bit him in the groin, causing “pain and bleeding.” He was transported to Beth Israel by EMS.
This incident was preceded by an attack on a cabbie. The same dog mauled the driver, biting his right arm and torso. He too was treated at the scene by emergency personnel and moved to Beth Israel.
Officers who responded removed the dog from the scene in a crate.
