Newington Police Look for Dog That Bit Girl Walking to Middle School

Newington police are looking for a dog that bit a middle school student walking to school Friday morning.

A girl was walking to Wallace Middle School in Newington at about 7:50 a.m. Friday from Fleetwood Road when a dog bit her near Halleran Drive, police said. The bite left puncture wounds on her.

Police said they are trying to find the dog that bit her and the owner to make sure the dog is up to date on its shots.

The dog was likely a mix between a pit bull and a boxer and was either black or grey. The canine was on a leash at the time of the attack.

Police described the possible owner as older and large-framed and said he has gray hair and was wearing a black jacket and blue jeans.

Police ask anyone who has seen a person and dog matching those descriptions to call Officer Petlik at 860-594-6227 or send a private message on the Newington Police Department Facebook page.
