Woman files $2,000,000 lawsuit against Glendale Police after dog attack

GLENDALE -- A woman filed a civil lawsuit against four members of the Glendale Police Department. The suit filed in federal court is demanding $2,000,000.

She claims the investigation into a dog attack that took place on Eula Court in March 2017 was not handled properly. 

The suit cites injuries to her head, back and wrist that required more than 140 medical treatments, including three surgeries.

The lawsuit claims after repeated calls for updates on the investigation, a sergeant told her:

 "If you don't like the way we handle this get yourself an attorney and sue us."

WTMJ sister station TODAY'S TMJ4 reached out to the Glendale Police Chief and City Attorney. Attorney John Fuchs replied they do not comment on pending litigation but the suit on its face suggests there is another side to the story.

Fuchs adds the owner of the dog involved in the attack was cited and, "The dog was not at large. She went into the dog's yard and approached the dog. Most of these processes pertain to dogs at large, not to people who enter upon the premises of another and engage the dog."
