The runner was attacked at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in Northern California on Thursday morning, the East Bay Regional Park District Police Department said in a news release. When the jogger tried to fend off the dog with pepper spray, the animal's owner bit her, "causing significant injury," the release stated.
Police posted video of the dog and its owner, taken by the runner on her cellphone, asking for help finding the suspect.
"Based on the nature and severity of the crime, police are asking the public’s assistance to help identify this female," the release read.
"It was pretty obvious it was not canine bites but rather human teeth," police Lt. David Phulps told KNTV. "In addition to the bite, there was punching, kicking. This dog owner stopped her in her tracks on the trail."
Alma Cadwalader of Oakland was arrested Friday and booked into Santa Rita Jail on suspicion of battery, false imprisonment and robbery, according to jail records. The robbery charge stems from her allegedly taking the runner's pepper spray, KTVU reported.
It's not clear whether Cadwalader has a lawyer.
