Ponca City Now - September 28, 2018 2:05 pm

ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. A 70-year-old Arkansas City man was critically injured Thursday night after being attacked by four dogs in his fenced back yard.

Officers with the Arkansas City Police Department were dispatched around 7 p.m. Thursday for a report of a dog bite at a residence at 1126 N. 13th St., located just west of Adams Elementary School.

The four dogs were on top of the victim in his back yard and attacking him, according to witnesses.

Police learned the dogs lived at the residence, and are owned by the victim and other residents there.

The Arkansas City Fire-EMS Department was dispatched and transported the victim by ambulance to South Central Kansas Medical Center. He then was taken by air ambulance to the Level I Trauma Center at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. He currently is listed as being in stable condition.

The dogs were loose after the attack, but officers were able to locate and capture all four animals.

They are mixed-breed dogs with different colors and fur lengths. All four dogs have been taken to the Cowley County Humane Society for a 10-day observation period.
