A woman was arrested for failure to license her dog after the animal allegedly bit a child visiting her home in the area.
The incident was reported to Yorktown Police on Monday, Nov. 4, when an Amawalk resident came to the department to report that her daughter had been bitten by a dog while visiting the home of Christy Gooden, 32, said the Yorktown Police.
