This morning around 9:30, officers were called to an area hospital in reference to a reported animal bite.
The victim said she was attending a New Year's Eve Party at an apartment complex in the area of 87th and Grant Street when she was bitten by a loose dog. The attack happened after she stepped outside the apartment and was approached by a brown and white dog (similar to a Bulldog) which ended up biting her without provocation.
Several people were able to pull the dog away from her and took it into a nearby apartment within the complex. They did not provide the victim with any information regarding the owner of the dog.
The 23 year-old victim was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries.
Anyone with information regarding the owner of this dog is asked to call the Overland Park Police Department at (913) 895-6300.
