A police officer escorting a teenager home from a traffic stop Thursday morning was attacked by a pack of Chihuahuas at the front door of the boy's home.
The officer suffered bite wounds to his ankles, was treated at Washington Hospital and returned to work within two hours, Fremont police Detective Bill Veteran said.
The incident happened at 3 a.m. at a home on the 200 block of Preston Court when the officer and his partner were returning home a 17-year-old boy they had detained at Butano Park and Tenor Court for driving without a license, Veteran said.
When the front door opened, the dogs rushed the officer, Veteran said.
Even at that early hour, it wasn't the first odd experience to involve Fremont police on Thursday.
At 1:15 a.m., a woman reported that she had been sleeping in her home on the 300 block of Stonebridge Drive when she heard someone typing on her computer in her den, Veteran said.
When she went to check on the noise, she indeed saw a man at her computer. He fled the home, and the woman discovered he had uploaded a pornographic screen saver to her desktop.
Nothing appeared to have been taken from the home.
