A Bartlesville boy had to be treated for injuries to his face after a dog bit him on the way home from school.  Captain Jay Hastings reports Bartlesville Police were dispatched to a dog bite call which occurred in the area of Cheyenne and Lupa just before 4:30 Tuesday afternoon. Bartlesville Ambulance and Fire were also sent to the home where the victim was identified as a six year old boy with injuries to the face and arm.

Hastings says preliminary investigations determined the six year old boy and his two brothers were dropped off of the school bus at Cheyenne and Lupa.  The two younger brothers went into the back yard of a home in the 200 block of NW Cheyenne while they were on the way home to pet a dog they thought looked like a dog they use to have.

Officers found dog which is a two year old brown and white pit bull. The dog was secured in the back yard by a cable attached to a tree. The owner of the dog was identified as Stacey Moreno who apparently lives at another address. Police issued the owner three citations (1) No city license (2) No rabies tag (3) Owner shall confine all vicious animals. The dog was also ordered quarantined for ten days. Stacey Moreno was arrested on an unrelated Bartlesville municipal warrant.

Bartlesville ambulance took the six year old boy to the hospital.  He had several lacerations around his right eye along with a bite mark on his right forearm.
