EAGLE ROCK, Los Angeles (October 14, 2016) – According to an article by KTLA, a man identified as Ian Alli got bitten in his face by a dog outside a sandwich shop on Colorado Boulevard Thursday evening.
The victim’s father, Brian Alli, claimed his son was at the area at about 6:00 p.m. soliciting money for the drug abuse prevention program. At a point, Ian encountered an individual with a pit bull on leash. Ian solicited money from the dog owner and conversed if the dog was friendly and the owner said yes. Then, Ian got down on one knee and touched the dog which in return bit him in his face.
As per the article, a witness who happened to be a lifeguard was nearby when the dog attack happened and rendered aid to Ian.
Currently, Ian is being treated at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. He suffered wounds to his lips, face, cheek and teeth.
Further, officers canvassed the area but didn’t find the dog owner, Jefferson said. Animal control services were notified, he added. The family is waiting on surveillance video.
