Roseville — Police in Roseville said Thursday they had identified the owner of the dogs that killed another dog and attacked its female owner Monday, and that person is talking with police.

"The owner is cooperating with our detectives," said the statement from Roseville Police Department.

Police did not offer any information about the owner's identity.

At about 6:20 p.m. Monday, in the area of Frazho and Kathy, east of Hayes, police say a 45-year-old woman was walking her 10-month-old beagle, Bella, when two large dogs attacked the pair.
