The College Station Police Department is asking for the public's help to locate a pit bull mix that bit a girl on Monday.
Police said the girl was riding her bike in the alley of the 900 block of Bougainvillea Street when she noticed a loose dog and stopped to pet it. The dog bit her when she stopped petting it, police said.
The dog, which was not neutered, was described as blue with a white chest and a long tail, short legs and semi-erect ears.
After the girl was bit, the owner called the dog and it returned to the man, who called the dog Steve or Steven.
Police said the dog needs to be observed to rule out possible rabies exposure to the girl.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 764-3600.
