JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A local man was cited for having a dog at large after a German Shepherd bit a man Saturday, Jonesboro police said. 

Ismael O. Prunty of Jonesboro was also cited for no state rabies tag and harboring a dangerous animal after police went to Briarwood Drive. The victim told police he was walking on Briarwood when the dog came up from behind and bit him. The dog then ran off after the man screamed. 

The victim told police he went back home to get his truck and drive around to look for the dog. The dog was later found in the 1600-block of Briarwood, police said. 

The dog was picked up and taken to Jonesboro Animal Control, where it will be held for court. Animal Control is also seeking restitution in the case. 

In a separate case, a Jonesboro man was cited by animal control after a dog bit a mailman in the chest.

Devin Coursey of Jonesboro was cited for dog running loose at large and dog bite after the mailman. Aaron L. Henson told police he was delivering mail in the 300-block of East Cherry Avenue when he noticed the dog.

Henson told police he was talking to a resident on the front porch when the dog came from inside the house and bit him, according to the police report.
