White Rock dog attack ‘left me bleeding and injured’

Owner fled with pet in Mercedes SUV: victim

A man says a dog attack Thursday evening on White Rock beach has left him with muscle damage.

Lee Lewis told Peace Arch News that the incident occurred at about 6 p.m., and involved a pitbull.

“I suffered multiple cuts and muscle damage to right arm,” Lewis writes in an email Thursday night. “The owner ran away with his dog and fled in a white Mercedes SUV leaving me bleeding and injured.”

White Rock RCMP Sgt. Rob Dixon confirmed Friday morning that police are investigating. He said the victim described the dog as a grey, off-leash pitbull. The dog’s owner was described as a Caucasian male.

“We do have an open file on it. Investigation is continuing, and we’re making attempts to try and identify the owner of the dog,” Dixon said.

Dixon also appealed to the male involved in the incident to come forward. The individual – or anyone with information that could help the police investigation – is asked to call the detachment at 778-593-3650.
