LINCOLN, Neb. – Photos of the injured man and dog are at the bottom of this story. The images are graphic.

Local authorities are asking for the public’s help gathering information after two dogs reportedly leaped out of a vehicle and attacked a couple last week.

LPD said on Oct. 3, around 10 a.m. near the intersection of Woodsdale Blvd. and Cedar Drive, a couple was walking their dog when two medium to large dogs jumped from a window of a passing vehicle.

The two dogs began attacking the couple and their dogs, police said, before a woman got out of the vehicle, pushed the dogs back inside, and left the area.

The male victim left the scene with his wife and drove to a nearby hospital, and Lincoln Animal Control said there was a severe bite wound to the man’s arm.

The victim’s dog were treated for multiple bites and expected to be okay, according to animal control.

The description provided to animal control is that one of the dogs was white with black on its face, and the second was said to be “reddish” or tan in color.

The vaccination status of either dog is unknown, police said, and animal control is hoping to talk to owners of the dogs.
