Police Report: Pit bull bites Elgin postal worker

From The Courier-News

Dog bites postal worker: A dog bit a postal worker as she delivered mail in the 400 block of Morgan Street Tuesday, police said. The dog's owner, Terry A. Contreras-Vonahnen, 49, told police her male pit bull mix, Rosco, charged through her locked screen door after the mail was delivered. She called the dog, which didn't respond until after biting the woman on the right forearm. Contreras-Vonahnen allowed police to take her dog to be euthanized, reports stated. The dog also had bitten a friend of her daughter earlier this month. Contreras-Vonahnen was issued multiple citations for both biting instances, and was given a notice to appear at Elgin Branch Court July 13. The postal worker was treated at Provena Saint Joseph Hospital and released.
