Dog mauls girl, 9
A 9-year-old girl was hospitalized in critical condition after being attacked by a dog Friday morning in the Elmwood section of Southwest Philadelphia, police said.
The girl was at her babysitter's home on Dicks Avenue near 68th Street when she opened a cage containing the dog, according to a police spokeswoman. The dog then bit the girl in the face.
Police said the wounds were not life-threatening. The dog, described as a pit-bull mix, was surrendered by the owner to the Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia.
Suspected thief nailed
Philadelphia police Friday morning arrested a man on a SEPTA bus who was wanted in a series of burglaries in Northeast Philadelphia and Bucks County.
Daniel Haggard, apprehended on a bus on Frankford Avenue near Pratt Street, was carrying cartons of cigarettes that he allegedly stole four hours earlier during a burglary at the CVS on Bustleton Avenue near Lott Street, police said.
Bensalem police said tipsters identified Haggard as the serial burglar after police released a surveillance video Wednesday showing a man looting a CVS in the township while wearing a "Property of Jesus" T-shirt.

Voter-ID senior is set
A plaintiff in a lawsuit seeking to overturn Pennsylvania's tough new voter-ID law has gotten the state-issued ID card necessary to vote, despite saying she'd been rejected for years because she lacked appropriate documentation to get the card.
Viviette Applewhite, a Philadelphian who recalled marching for voting rights in 1960 with Martin Luther King Jr., was issued the temporary card on Thursday, the same day lawyers for her and others opposing the law appealed a judge's refusal to halt the law from taking effect in the Nov. 6 presidential election.
Applewhite, 93, had trouble meeting the state's documentation requirements to get a photo ID. For one thing, she did not have a Social Security card after it was stolen with her purse some years ago, she has said. Plus, she was adopted early in life, making the name on her birth certificate different from that on her other paperwork, and she did not have a record of the adoption.
