Trick or treaters ok after encounter with pit bull on Halloween

Posted: Updated:

 Four trick-or-treaters suffered minor injuries after being chased by a pit bull Halloween night in the area of 9900 Echo Valley Court in Little Rock.

 Parents of the children called police saying their children had been attacked and bitten by the dog, as they went door to door celebrating the holiday.

 MEMS was called and attended to the children at the scene. MEMS personnel told police it appeared the children's injuries were from falling on concrete while trying to get away from the dog, and not from a dog bite.

 The dog's owner, Demetri Blake, was cited for not having his pit bull on a leash, and for not having the dog registered. The pit bull was taken by animal control for quarantine purposes.
