The presumed owner of two dogs that attacked another dog at Dolores Park on Sunday is still nowhere to be found, San Francisco police say Wednesday.

Police are looking for a man who was with two Pit bulls when they attacked a Lhasa Apso in the unleashed area of Dolores Park on Sunday. The Lhasa Apso, named Bloom, was left with puncture wounds on her back while her family members also had bite wounds on their hands from attempting to separate the dogs.

Around 11:45 a.m., police responded to the scene but the man left leashed up the brown and gray Pit bulls and left without providing contact or vaccination information. He was last seen heading north on Noe Street.

A 43-year-old woman, a 49-year-old man, and an 18-year-old woman, all from Culver City, had bite wounds on their hands. Another 23-year-old woman from San Francisco had bite wounds on her right hand.

Three of them were transported to the hospital while Bloom was treated by a veterinarian.

San Francisco police are asking the public to help identify the man and dogs by calling 415-553-9182. Anyone with information on the case may call the 24-hour tip line at 415-575-4444 or text “SFPD” to TIP411.
