A woman was attacked while walking her dog at an Olmsted Falls apartment complex on Tuesday afternoon.

The woman said she was walking her dogs by the dumpster area near the "J" building at Fawn Lake Apartments, 9625 Fernwood Drive, when a dog suddenly came from behind the dumpster and ran at her dog.

She told police that she tried to defend her dog by getting in between her dog and the unknown dog.

The dog was described as resembling a black Labrador with short fur, weighing more than 50 pounds. She said the dog looked unkempt and had no collar.

Police searched the area. The dog has not been found.
