Just after 11:00, officers were sent to a home in the 300 block of north Virginia on a report that the dog had bit a man and tried to attack a juvenile girl. A motorcycle officer was the first to arrive, and the dog tried to jump a fence to attack.

Starting Wednesday, motorists should expect some delays on south Pierce Street, beginning at southeast 4th, all the way down to southeast 9th in downtown as construction of a sanitary sewer main and other facilities will commence.
Traffic has been limited to two lanes but will now be down to one. The work is scheduled to be completed by November 26th. Drivers are encouraged to take alternate routes and are asked to proceed with extreme caution as there will be heavy construction equipment being used.
Expect some traffic delays over the next few days on Coulter between I-40 and 9th street, near the area of the hospitals.
Mark Read, City Engineer, says crews worked on that project over the weekend so it should be finished by this Wednesday. And further delays will be experienced on Hillside Road on the west side of the intersection with Coulter Street due to construction of a new sanitary sewer main.
The Hillside lanes should be all reopened by January 16th.
