Bettendorf Dog Bite Owner Found

Posted: Updated:

After getting numerous tips, Bettendorf police say they've found the owner of the dog that bit a teenager earlier this week.
     
It happened Tuesday at Mark Twain Elementary. A loose dog, described as a German Shepard, bit a 13-year-old boy on the arm.     
     
Police say the owner was there then left the scene. With the public's help, police identified the owner and they were able to determine the dog is up to date with all vaccinations.

"The victim was very lucky as far as injuries," Bettendorf Capt. Keith Kimball said. "They were pretty minor actually, they could have been a lot more serious."

It is anticipated that charges will be filed on the dog owners sometime next week.
