A victim in a local dog bite incident said the city is lying to protect a prominent family. Her account, and the city’s, differ strongly.
On Aug. 21, Deborah Barrera was walking her dogs down Seventh Street. That much Barrera and the city agree on.
But from that point on, versions of events differ. Barrera, in an interview with the Optic, said that a bull mastiff owned by Carlos Sandoval charged through an open gate, attacking Barrera’s terrier and biting her hand when she attempted to intervene.
