ST. CHARLES – A couple reported damage to their 2006 Cadillac STC after encountering unleashed dogs – one of which was aggressive toward the couple – on a pedestrian path near Red Gate Road, according to St. Charles police reports.

On June 22, the couple had parked their vehicle in the dog park lot just north of Red Gate Road in St. Charles.

The couple told police that while walking on a pedestrian trail, they encountered a man and a woman walking five unleashed dogs. One of the dogs reportedly jumped on the female Cadillac owner and bit the pinky of the male Cadillac owner, but did not draw blood.

The couple told the woman walking the dogs that she should control her dogs, but the woman told them they “didn’t understand” because they weren’t dog owners, police reported.

When the couple returned to the parking lot, they noticed their car had been keyed.

They described the woman walking the dogs as mid- to late-40s with reddish hair and wearing a black tank top. The man with her was described as mid- to late-60s with white hair and a white mustache. The dogs were medium-sized mixed breeds.
