VIDEO: Dog owner assaults woman at Atlanta park

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Police are searching for a man who apparently struck a woman at the Old Fourth Ward skate park in Atlanta.

According to Atlanta police, two women had taken their children to the park on Monday. One of women said that they were playing in the playground area, where the man had two unleashed dogs.  

"One of his dogs, who was off leash…went up to my friend's 3-year-old girl who was sitting on a stone bench and went up to her and licked her. And we told him he needs to put his leash on and then we were calling the police," said the women.

The victim, who didn't want her face shown, says while one of her friends called police, she started to record.

The victim says the video is being reviewed by her neighborhood association and Atlanta police.

Authorities tell us it's an apparent case of battery, and perhaps other charges.

"I'm glad that as a woman, you know, all the girls who we were with, the 3-year-old girls, saw me standing up for myself, and the dogs were not the issue, it was the owner," said the woman.

After one of the women began recording him with her phone, the man struck her on her hand, knocking the phone onto the ground. Her iPhone was not damaged and she posted the video on YouTube in hopes of identifying her attacker.
