A dog bite was reported on Wapakoneta Middle School grounds at 9:43 a.m. on Friday, April 18.
Principal Wes Newland called the Wapakoneta Police Department advising he was bit in the ankle by a dog while he was riding his bicycle to school.
According to the report, Newland advised that he did not wish to file charges, only to find the dog’s owner.
Dog owner Michael Barbee, 34, of 303 Jackson St., Wapakoneta, was informed that the dog had gotten loose. A similar incident was reported on Sunday, April 13, when the same dog bit a 14-year-old boy riding his bicycle on Jackson Street.
Both incidents reported minor puncture wounds. No medical treatment was required.
Barbee was also issued a citation for dogs running at large in January after an officer observed a young man shielding himself from the dog with his bicycle.
The incident remains under investigation.
