MANITOWOC, Wis. (WFRV) – The Manitowoc Police Department is searching for a suspect and their dog involved in a dog bite incident on Saturday afternoon, in Manitowoc.

According to police, between 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., the bite victim was walking their dog on East Cedar Drive, near the Stangel Learning Community Building, when both he and his dog were approached by a possible Lab/Boxer mix described to be darker in color, with an unknown color collar, and an unknown gender.
