Jun 24, 2004 Pit Bull Used as Weapon in Bowling Alley

An unknown offender was driving through the parking lot of Diversey River Bowl at “reckless speed.” The offender got into an argument with a 30-year-old man in the parking lot. The argument ended but minutes later the offender returned and unleashed a pitbull dog on him. The offender then struck him in the head with an unknown object, possibly a tire iron. The victim left the scene, went home and later called police. He refused medical attention despite the gash on his scalp. The attack took place at approximately 10:30pm on June 17.
