AKRON, Ohio (WOIO) - An Akron Municipal Court judge issued an arrest warrant for an Akron woman whose dogs attacked four people in March.

Diane Yanke, 58, was scheduled to appear for sentencing in Akron Municipal Court at 10 a.m.

She failed to show to the court appearance, triggering an arrest warrant.

Yanke previously pleaded guilty to seven of the 21 misdemeanor charges she faced.

Police and prosecutors said Yanke’s dogs attacked multiple people outside of her home on East Archwood Avenue on March 3.

One of the victims was a social worker who was bitten so severely in the legs that she had to use a walker to get around.

This is a developing story.
