Police responded to a horse-riding stable in the 23800 block of Southeast 24th Street at 11 a.m. March 22. A man had been riding by on his bicycle with his dog off leash.

When the girl’s father confronted the bike rider, he responded, yelling that he doesn’t have to have his dog on a leash and using profanity. The woman who runs the stable was more interested in an apology for the man’s behavior than anything else.
