Medical treatment required: An 8-year-old boy was reportedly bitten by a dog while walking on Nautilus Trail April 2 just before 4 p.m. The mother, who lives in Reminderville, reportedly took her child to the emergency room, where he received stitches in his shoulder and arm. The mother's boyfriend, also of Reminderville, reported that he was walking with the boy when the child was attacked by a pit bull-Boston terrier mix. The boyfriend said he saw the owner but did not get their information because he wanted to get the child medical attention.
On April 4, a Reminderville husband and wife came to the police station, saying they owned the dog. They were able to provide records on the dog's shots. The wife said she had been walking the dog on Nautilus Trail when she saw a group of children and a man approach her. She struck up a conversation with the man, and the 8-year-old got close to the dog, which excited the animal and the dog bit the boy. The couple provided their contact information to give to the boy's mother, and the dog was ordered quarantined for 10 days. Reminderville police forwarded the shot records and the report was forwarded to the Summit County Health Department.
Medical check leads to arrest: A Shaker Heights man called Reminderville police April 9 to a Reminderville residence for a medical check on his mother, and was arrested after a warrant was discovered for his arrest from Cuyahoga County for drug trafficking offenses.
The man said he went to his mother's residence after not not hearing from her in a few days, and reported finding his mother on the floor in an upstairs bedroom, conscious but disoriented and sweating. The man tried to convince his mother to let him take her to the hospital, but she refused, so he called the police. The mother admitted she was on multiple prescribed medications, and no drug-related paraphernalia was found in the residence. She was taken to the Cleveland Clinic in Twinsburg.
While there, Reminderville officers discovered a warrant for the Shake Heights man's arrest out of the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's office. The man, 21, was taken into custody. A large sum of money, his cell phone and cell phone charger were taken.
On April 11, Reminderville police were called by the mother, who said that her son had come over to her house, upset with her and blaming her for his arrest. She told police she planned to file for a civil protection order.
