EpsomPolice chief: No update on incident involving dog, child

Epsom Police Chief Wayne Preve said Wednesday that he will not release any further information about a emergency incident Saturday that involved a child and a dog.

Police and rescue personnel filled the street in front of the home on Old Town Road Extension on Saturday, but officials have released little information.

Preve made it clear Wednesday that nothing further would come from his office.

“There will not be a statement, there will not be a press release, and the case is still under investigation, Preve said. “It’s a very sensitive case.”

On Saturday, State Trooper John Sonia relayed information he said he received from Preve since Epsom police were leading the investigation.

“It’s very preliminary right now,” Sonia said Saturday. “It’s an isolated incident that appears accidental.”

Sonia said Preve had no comment on the age of the minor, the gender, the type of dog, or any potential injuries that might have happened inside.

Sonia added that criminal activity was not involved and the public was in no danger.

The house, hidden in the summer and fall by foliate, was visible from Old Town Road through trees. The area was busy, with two Epsom police SUVs, three black, unmarked state police cruisers, and an SUV and ambulance from the Epsom Fire Department.
