BERKELEY -- A man reportedly ordered his pit bull to attack a woman following an argument in People's Park on Sunday, authorities said.
It all started around 7:30 p.m. when the 22-year-old woman and her friends got into an argument with another group near the basketball court, UC Berkeley police said.
One man kicked the woman and forced her out of the park and onto Dwight Way by pushing her several times, police said. The man then reportedly gave a command to his pit bull to attack the woman.
The woman was later treated for a bite on her arm at a Berkeley hospital. University police who patrol the park searched for the suspect but did not find him.
The suspect is described as a white man in his 30s, about 6 feet tall, weighing approximately 180 pounds, with shoulder-length blonde dreadlocks. He has a triangle tattooed on his chin, another triangle under his left eye and three dots tattooed down his nose.
