Missing K-9 from Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office bites 14-year-old boy

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) -- A K-9 that disappeared from the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office bit a teenager.

The sheriff's office says the K-9 went missing around 7:00 p.m. from his home in the area of 21st Street North and 119th Street West.

Around 10:30 p.m., a citizen found the K-9 in the area of 2100 N. Parkridge, put the dog on a leash and walked around the neighborhood trying to locate its owner. No one in the neighborhood claimed ownership of the dog.

The citizen returned home and the dog was placed in the bedroom of a 14-year-old boy.

The sheriff's office says around 5:30 a.m., the 14-year-old was walking the dog in the neighborhood. While the boy was attempting to remove the leash, the dog bit the boy on his chest and face.

The boy went home and the dog remained outside. The boy's mother took him to the Wesley Minor Emergency Clinic for his minor injuries. The boy has since returned home.

Around 6:00 a.m., the K-9 was located by the K-9 handler.

The sheriff's office is still investigating how the dog got out of his enclosure.
