The following incidents were listed in the official reports of the Harwood Heights and Norridge Police Departments. Readers are reminded that an arrest by police does not constitute a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination.
Vincenzo Recchia, 46, of 4900 N. Chester Ave., Norridge, was cited after police said his pit bull attacked another dog on Chester Avenue and Ainslie Avenue June 11 at 10:12 a.m. Police said Recchia left his dog in the gated backyard of his home and it somehow escaped and attacked the dog while it was being walked by its owner. Recchia was cited for having no village-issued license tag for his dog, no proof of rabies vaccinations and for not having the dog on a leash. The owner of the dog that was bitten was also treated to a bite on her hand, police said.
