Police still withholding names of those involved in Broomfield dog attack, shooting - Broomfield Enterprise

Police still have not released the names of the three people involved in a dog attack on Friday morning.

The dog, a Staffordshire terrier, was shot and killed after it attacked two people — including a police sergeant — who were trying to help its elderly owner who had collapsed in the street.

Police spokesman Joleen Reefe this week said the names of the sergeant, the owner of the dog and a bystander who tried to help are being withheld because of the ongoing investigation. She would not say when the names would be released.

Reefe said she did not know the dog owner’s condition or if he was released from the hospital.

The unidentified 83-year-old man was walking the dog, which police had initially identified as a pit bull, in the 1900 block of Dover Street when he collapsed around 9:35 a.m.

A Dover Street resident saw the man collapse and called 911. She ran out to help him, but was bitten on the forearm by the dog, Sgt. Steve Griebel said last week.

When police arrived, the unidentified sergeant also tried to help the man. The man told the sergeant to take his dog by the leash, and when the sergeant did that, he also was attacked by the dog, Griebel said.
