A U.S. Postal Carrier escaped injury Monday morning after a resident distracted two escaped dogs that began acting aggressively towards him.

A resident in the 1700 block of South Washington Avenue, where the incident occurred, distracted the bulldog and shepherd mix away from the postal carrier after the dogs started nipping at him. The resident, described as a man in his 30s, also had to climb on top of a police car to escape the dogs before officers corralled the canines back into their yard, police said.

The incident was reported at 11:42 a.m.

The postal carrier’s clothes were nipped by the dogs, but he did not receive any wounds, said Lt. Matt Williams of Glendora Police.

Officers did not employ any use of force to corral the dogs back into their owners yard, Williams said.

The Inland Valley Humane Society is handling the report and would also issue any possible citations resulting from the incident, Williams said.
