Topeka Man Receives 10 Citations For Dog Attacks in Park

A 28-year-old Topeka man has received 10 citations after police say his two pit bull-type dogs attacked three people, including an 11-year-old boy.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Angelo Aldridge was issued six citations for a dangerous dog, two for having a dog at large and two for not having a city tag for them.

Police say the two dogs bit the boy, who escaped to the top of some monkey bars, and two men, ages 21 and 33, who tried to intervene.

A Topeka police officer shot one of the dogs and both were captured by police, who were called to Chesney Park at 2:09 p.m. Thursday.

Police Chief James Brown says the officer who shot the dog probably saved several lives. None of the bites were considered life-threatening.
