The R/P, a Tomahawk man, 64, reported that he was fishing at that location when an unknown male subject along with a passenger and dog pulled up in a red pickup truck. The dog then urinated on the R/P’s tackle box and jacket so the R/P yelled at the dog. The unknown male suspect told the R/P not to yell at his dog and then displayed a gun. The suspect, along with his passenger and dog, left the area. No better description of the suspect vehicle or suspects were available. No one was injured.

Staff from the hospital reported that a child, 3, was brought to the hospital with bite marks on his right upper arm and forearm. Pictures provided to the investigating deputy by the hospital clearly showed injuries consistent with someone being bitten.
