2-year-old bitten in face by dog, owner cited

RICHMOND — A Richmond woman was cited Thursday with harboring a vicious animal after a 2-year-old child was bitten in the face by her dog.

Billie J. Martin, 29, of Race Street, was cited and released by the Richmond police, according to a report from the agency.

An officer responded to a call at noon in the 700 block of Sizemore Drive about a dog bite. The officer met with the parent of the boy who said the child had been bitten in the face by a pit-bull type dog owned by Martin, the report stated.

The child suffered a “significant laceration” to the side of his head and was taken to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for treatment and possible surgery, the RPD reported.

Police were told Martin was visiting the area at the time of the incident but had left prior to the arrival of the officer.

Martin was later found in her home where she was cited for harboring a vicious animal. The officer ordered her to quarantine the dog pending further action by the Madison County Health Department and the courts.

Harboring a vicious animal is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable up to 90 days in jail and a $250 fine.

Jason Drive resident charged with assaulting officer

A Jason Drive man faces a felony assault charge after he allegedly kicked and spat on a Richmond police officer Friday.

Mashari S. Alfawaz, 22, was arrested and charged with third-degree assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, second-degree disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication in a public place.

At 4:05 a.m., an officer was dispatched to Alfawaz’ home in the 400 block of Jason Drive after receiving a loud-noise complaint.

The officer reported hearing loud noise from within the apartment through an open door. Alfawaz was “highly intoxicated,” and the officer advised him not to leave his home or he would risk being charged with alcohol intoxication, the report stated.

Alfawaz then came out of the apartment and pushed the officer aside, so the officer placed the man under arrest, according to the RPD.  Alfawaz is accused of unsuccessfully attempting to pull the officer to the ground to avoid being taken into custody. 

After Alfawaz was secured, he spat on the officer as he was being led to the police car, according to the report. Lastly, the officer reported that Alfawaz kicked him as he was placing him inside the police vehicle with the assistance of another officer.

Bicycle reported stolen from Bruce Court

A resident in the 200 block of Bruce Court reported Thursday that an unknown-make blue, 26-inch bicycle with orange and red flames had been stolen from outside the residence sometime prior to Thursday. The bicycle had a blue seat with yellow stripes. Estimated loss: $300.

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call the Richmond Police Department at 623 1162.
