A Clinton woman is at The University of Iowa Hospitals is recovering from a dog attack.

Police say 31-year-old, Destony Payton, was sitting on the curb in the 2200 block of north 6th street in Clinton just before midnight Sunday when she was attacked by a loose dog.

People in the community are concerned for their safety, but police are reassuring them.

"We want to make our citizens aware that this occurred. We did have a dog bite in that area and we're trying to make sure our citizens can keep an eye out for that dog," said Capt. Bill Greenwalt, Operations Commander of Clinton Police.

This Is the second serious attack in just more than a month. Sandy Bartels with the Clinton Humane Society says incidents like these can be prevented.

"Take it to the dog parks, take it down and walk it downtown. Get that dog around people get it around other dogs so that it's used to them, and we just find that with some of that training we don't have those issues so much," she said.

The dog is still at large. He's described as short-haired, stocky and a dark color. He's also wearing a blue collar.

Police are encouraging people in the area to immediately call Clinton Police Department if they see this dog, or any dog on the loose.
