While on patrol, an officer reported seeing a postal carrier on First Avenue being barked at and growled at by a pit bull dog. The carrier told the officer the dog had chased her up the sidewalk in an aggressive manner. The officer, Patrolman Shawn Long, attempted to exit his cruiser several times but the dog kept barking and growling at him until a neighbor familiar with it volunteered to chain it up in the owner's back yard. Long was unable to contact the owner, Cimberly M. Bryant, 33, Pennsylvania Avenue, but issued a citation against her for dogs running at large.
