Cat attacks dog, flees: Great Park Cir., 12400 block, Germantown, Sept. 13. A cat ran out from underneath an apartment balcony and attacked a dog being walked by its owner. The dog’s owner, who wanted to pursue a citation for unwanted contact, which can result in a $500 fine, assumed the cat belonged to the resident of the apartment, but the resident did not own any cats. The officer left postings on several apartment doors about the tan-colored cat but did not see the cat during the investigation.
