*9/16/18 (Dog Bite)
11:25 PM- Officers responded to a dog bite call on Beacon Street.  Upon arrival an officer met with the victim who was at the time receiving medical attention.  Officers viewed the victim to be bleeding from the mouth area with a large amount of blood on her shirt and face.  An officer spoke with the dog owner who reported she was sitting at a sidewalk table with a friend and her dog by her side on a leash.  She noticed two females exit an Uber ride and walk toward the building she was sitting in front of.  She stated suddenly, without asking for permission, the victim knelt over and grabbed the dog by the neck and ears with both hands and pushed her face towards the dogs face.  She says her dog was startled and bit the woman on the face.  The owner explained to the officer that her dog is a friendly rescue dog that she has had for 6 years with no previous incidents.  The friend who was sitting at the table at the time of the incident stated separately that the victim suddenly approached and knelt toward the dog and placed her face into the dogs face.  The dog then bit her.  An officer also spoke with the victim’s friend who stated she was walking behind the victim when the victim approached the dog.  She reports the victim leaned toward the dog and was bit.  Brookline Health Department was notified as well as Animal Control. 

An officer observed the dog to be calm and petted by a few people with no issues.  Based on the initial investigation and observations it is believed that the dog was provoked by the victim when she leaned toward the dog.  At this time there are no by-law violations.  The dog has been place on a 10 day quarantine.
