A 62-year-old Bluffton woman was hurt last week when a dog lunged at her while she rode her bike.
The victim was riding in the 600 block of Farm Lake Drive on Oct. 23 when a medium-size dog broke free of its chain and came toward her, according to the Bluffton Police Department. The dog reportedly bit the frame of the bike, causing the woman to fall and injure her leg.
The dog tried to bite her but did not break the skin, the victim told police when she reported the incident Monday. EMS responded and treated her injury. The victim requested officers not contact the dog's owners, the report said.
