The attack happened around 3:35 p.m. when Candice Barber’s children took the dog outside to play. The dog then bit a 4-year-old child at the apartment complex, according to reports.
“I then met with Kevin Watson who stated that the dog bit his son Brantlee Owens, age 4, on both sides of the face and EMS had already left with the child,” Officer Matt Pritchett stated. “Toddreckius Barber, the husband of Candice Barber, stated they had already contacted Summerville Animal Control and was taking the dog for the 10 day quarantine period. I did call and verify they had spoken with Summerville Animal Control and they had. The animal was transported to the facility by the owners.”
