The Spring Valley Police Department released a statement Tuesday reporting on the investigation into a Dog attack on January 7th, 2020.
The dog had attacked two children, injuring one of them, when a yungerman rushed to help. The dog turned on the yungerman, seriously injuring him before the dog was caught.
The results of the investigation found that the dogs owner, Daveun Whittle, had released the dog as he was on his way to court where he expected to be put in prison.
Unable to find someone to watch the dog, he let it loose in the hopes it would find a new home.
He was charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child, and Reckless Endangerment 2nd Degree.
Whittle is presently incarcerated in the Rockland County Jail for other crimes.
