Animal bites

Man and dog attacked: A South Bedford Road man reported he and his dog were attacked by a large dog while they were walking near the Nordonia High School tennis courts during the late evening Aug. 14. The man told police the attack resulted in having to be treated at a hospital for bites to his leg and hand and a broken toe and his dog was treated at an emergency veterinary clinic for minor injuries.

The man said that while walking near the tennis court, he heard a dog barking and then someone yell a warning. The man said the large dog then ran from one of the tennis courts and went after his dog and he began kicking at the large dog while his dog ran away. After his right leg was bitten, he began kicking with his left leg and at some point his toe broke. The large dog then retreated and the man ran after his dog and found it at home.

The man said he saw the dog’s owner, an unknown male with an SUV. Police said they were unable to find the male or the large dog in the area, but they are investigating.

Gun found in vehicle: Police said they charged a 42-year-old Burton woman with fourth-degree felony improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle, fifth-degree felony drug possession and misdemeanor drug paraphernalia possession, littering from a motor vehicle, display of plates, and turn signals after they saw her throw a lit cigarette from her vehicle, noticed the vehicle was missing a front license plate and she failed to use a turn signal while merging into traffic on Interstate 271 northbound from South Freeway Drive at about 11:05 p.m. Aug. 8. Police said that when they asked the woman if there were any weapons in the vehicle, she said she did and they found a loaded .22-caliber pistol in the driver’s door pocket. Police said they also found suspected meth and a meth pipe allegedly belonging to the woman in the vehicle and she was taken to Macedonia City Jail.

Police said they cited a passenger in the vehicle, a 33-year-old Oaktree Drive man, with misdemeanor drug paraphernalia possession after they found him with a marijuana pipe.


Items stolen from vehicle: A New York man and woman reported Aug. 8 that someone took two backpacks containing clothing and a purse containing documents and other miscellaneous items totaling an estimated $150 in value from their vehicle while it was parked outside an East Highland Road hotel during the night. The woman said she was sure she locked the vehicle the night before and the man said he was certain it was still locked when he discovered the theft in the morning, but police said there was no sign of forced entry. Police said they searched the area, but were unable to find any of the items.

Resisting arrest

Belligerent man reported: A 23-year-old North Canton man was charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest, obstructing official business and disorderly conduct while intoxicated after employees of an East Highland Road business reported the man was knocking other patrons over and periodically lying down on the ground at the business July 28. Police said they approached the man after seeing him get into a passenger seat in a vehicle in the business’ parking lot and he became belligerent and repeatedly refused to give them any identification or get out of the vehicle. Police said that after two officers pulled him out of the vehicle, he kept turning to face them and pulling his arms away to prevent them from handcuffing him and then became dead weight and tried falling to the ground in an attempt at preventing them from walking him to a police car. The man was taken to Macedonia City Jail. No charges were reported against a woman and another man in the vehicle.
