JANESVILLE—Janesville police are searching for a woman who owns a dog that police say bit a pedestrian Thursday on Janesville's west side.

According to a Janesville police alert, a pedestrian was walking past a female who was walking two German shepherd dogs in the 200 block of North Academy Street Thursday when one of the dogs bit the pedestrian.

According to the alert, the dog bit the pedestrian in the “lower extremities,” and caused injuries which required medical treatment.

The dogs' owner, who is described as white woman who is 5 feet, 6 inches tall with long gray hair and a large nose, was at the time wearing a black sweater, jeans and tennis shoes. The woman gave a false name and phone number to the pedestrian, police said.

Authorities are seeking to serve a dog bite order in the incident. Police are asking anyone with information on the identity of the dogs' owner to call 608-757-2244.
