14-11571        Stray Dog        7200 Block of W. Yellowstone Ave
The RP was walking his dog in front in the 7200 block of W. Yellowstone Ave when a black lab attacked him.  The RP said he wasn't actually bit and the dog was aggressive toward another female who was walking by.  The RP said the dog was barking and snarling toward him and his dog.  An attempt was made to contact the resident where the dog lives but no one answered the door.  The residence will be re-contacted in an effort to speak with the dog owner. 
14-11584        Domestic Disturbance        500 Block of 14TH Street
Deputies responded to a disturbance in which the RP called in and reported her daughter, 38-YOA Jennifer White, had just broken into her residence.  The RP said she had the locks changed and her daughter doesn't have a key.  The RP added her daughter hit her before going outside.  When deputies arrived it was determined the daughter didn't break in, but that the door was open.  The daughter did hit her mother in the shoulder and entered the residence after being repeatedly told not to come over and she wasn't welcome.
