MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Authorities arrested a Macon woman who was bitten by a Chihuahua after stealing it from its home.

Authorities identified the suspect as 40-year-old Robin Fender, of Macon.
Bibb County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call in the 100 block of Lokchapee Landing about a person being bitten by a dog.

Authorities say when deputies arrived, the Animal Enforcement informed them that a Chihuahua bit Fender. Deputies say that Fender reportedly removed the dog from a house on Saint Charles Place.

Authorities later discovered that the owner of the Chihuahua was in the Houston County Jail. The Chihuahua also had four puppies.
