Mastiff Attacks LAPD Officers

Los Angeles: On Tuesday, June 13, 2006, around 11:30 a.m., officers from West Valley Area Station responded to a radio call of a screaming man, in the 7600 block of Topanga Canyon Boulevard. When police arrived at the apartment building, they were met by a man who directed them to the unit from which loud screams had been heard.

Due to the nature of the call for service, officers immediately attempted to contact the residents, but received no response from within the apartment. Believing that someone may have been in danger, the officers entered and began searching when a large Mastiff dog charged from one of the rooms. It bared its teeth and lunged at the officers. Police Officer James Woods fired two rounds, missing the animal. The dog retreated to a back bedroom.

The officers continued their search and found the dog's owners who were unaware of any problem.

The officers were not injured.

Police Officer James Woods, is 43-years old and has 17 years with the LAPD.
