Police say suspects threatened customers after dog bit boy

POSTED: March 26, 2013 11:41 p.m.

A judge set bond Monday at $10,000 for two Cumming men charged with aggravated assault after allegedly threatening customers when a dog belonging to one of the men bit a child earlier this month at a Gainesville pet store.

Craig Wooke is out of jail on bond, and Darin Lee Dyer Jr. was still being held in Hall County Jail as of Tuesday afternoon, county records show.

Police said a dog belonging to Wooke bit 6-year-old David Lane in the face March 16 at the PetSmart store on Dawsonville Highway when the boy tried to pet the dog.

Authorities say Wooke and Dyer then fled from the store and Dyer allegedly pointed a gun at a customer who tried to intervene in the parking lot.

The men next appear in court at 9 a.m. April 8 for a committal hearing.

Police have said further charges connected with the animal attack may be pending.

The dog was seized by animal control officers and is being held under quarantine.
