OKLAHOMA CITY – Police said a man is recovering after he was allegedly pistol whipped and then attacked by a pit bull during an argument.
“He did not have a very good day,” said MSgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
It was a bad day, and then it got worse.
It all started when a group of people stopped by a home near S.W. 50th St. and S. Shartel to see people they knew.
“They began arguing and, at some point, one of the people was pistol whipped,” Knight said.
It didn’t stop there.
“Another person there who had a pit bull there in the residence actually sicced the dog on the guy,” Knight said.
Officials said the dog bit the victim several times.
The victim told police, once he was free from his attackers, he jumped through the window and started running.
“He was covered in blood because he had been beaten up pretty good, not only beaten up but attacked by a dog,” Knight said.
The suspect, 29-year-old Jessie Rivera Jr., was quickly arrested at the home.
Rivera was booked into jail on a charge of assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
