John L. Beldon, 47, address unavailable, has received a citation for allowing a dog to run at large following a Friday, May 31 incident.
Joann Winfield, 75, Archbold, told police she was walking in front of 115 South Defiance Street when a large dog ran up to her, knocking her down. She suffered a cut to a knee and a finger.
The report notes the dog was on a leash, but the leash was in the hands of a juvenile who was unable to control the dog.
Beldon’s address and other information were redacted from the police report because he is a firefighter. Archbold police officials say state law requires personal identifying information for police officers and firefighters be redacted.
