Police Log: Dog Bites, DUI and Theft

July 28 – Dog Law & Bites

  • 3500 block of Glenn Way

A resident called LMPD to report that two dogs - a large, grey and black Great Dane, and a brown and white Bassett Hound - were loose on his property with no collars or leashes on. The resident claimed that while the Great Dane was running around his backyard, it attacked his cat.

The dog’s owner, Marc Pressman, 55, of Huntingdon Valley, stated that he had just finished washing his dogs but didn’t realize they got loose. Pressman told police that he believed his dogs ran to the neighboring property because the homeowner has given food to both of his dogs in the past.

There are prior incidents for Pressman and his dogs and a citation will be filed against him for the infraction.

July 26 – DUI; Hit-and-Run

  • Area of Huntingdon Pike and Byberry Rd.

Glenn Leader, 38, of Philadelphia, has a DUI and other charges pending after being involved in a two-car accident and then fleeing the scene. Leader rear-ended an 86-year-old woman on Huntingdon Pike while approaching Byberry Rd.

Both parties originally pulled over to the side of the road, but after a few seconds Leader drove off without exiting his car, exchanging information or checking for injuries.

When officers eventually stopped Leader, they detected the strong smell of alcohol on his breath, reported that he was lethargic, his eyes were glassy, his speech was slurred and he was confused as to why he was being stopped. Leader admitted to having three beers before driving. He registered a .160% BAC.
