Woman Seeks $3 Million in Damage After Being Attacked by Police Dog
A 21-year-old woman is suing Peel Regional Police Department after being attacked by a police dog on June 28.
The police were on a search for robbery suspects around 10 p.m. when she was attacked. She is suing for $3 million in damages for “severe bites to her left arm,” psychological damage and loss of enjoyment of life.
Her mother is also suing for $1 million over allegation of being deprived of the “comfort, guidance and companionship of her daughter and for compensation relate to nursing, housekeeping and other services she has provided.
The police claim that the man’s called out “police canine unit” and in that moment the German shepherd began to attack Rosales.
He caused the most damage to the women’s left arm.
The handler of the dog failed to stop him, as reported in the lawsuit.
Records released show that the police dog has been involved in 73 police occurences in which many were severe attacks.
The SIU investigated, but closed the case Aug. 29, saying it did not have evidence to lay criminal negligence charges against the dog’s handler.
