Charges Filed In Pitbull Attack

Prosecutors have charged a homeless man with assault for allegedly siccing his dog on two people at an encampment in South Seattle. We first reported the incident here.

The PI.com has details on the charges:

In charging documents, Seattle police claim Daniel A. Delgado ordered his dog to attack the victims after they wandered into a homeless camp in a wooded area near Airport Way South.

The alleged victims, a man and a woman, told police they walked into the camp at 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 10. They apologized and attempted to leave after Delgado approached them holding his dog, a brown pit bull mix, on a leash, according to police.

Delgado then dropped his dog’s leash and order the dog to attack, a Seattle detective continued. The dog then set upon them, biting each of the alleged victims in the forearm.
