A 41-year old Lincoln man is facing a long list of criminal charges after allegedly ordering his dog to attack a 9-year old boy.
Police say during an argument Saturday night, Cedric Fowler kicked a woman in her stomach and knocked her down a flight of stairs. The woman’s son jumped on Fowler to defend his mother. At that point, Fowler allegedly called his dog to attack the boy.
The boy was bitten on the hand.
Fowler was no where around when police arrived. However, while the boy was telling police what happened, he saw Fowler hiding nearby and pointed him out to officers. Fowler was captured after a brief chase.
He was booked for 2nd degree assault, felony child abuse, and domestic assault.
