The dog that bit a youngster in the Wise Street area Tuesday evening was found to be up to date on its rabies innoculations, Hagerstown City Police said Wednesday.

For the next 10 days, the dog must be quarantined by its owner to make sure it shows no signs of rabies, said Sgt. George Knight.

The child was treated and released from Washington County Hospital Tuesday.

A man who was spotted on the railroad tracks near the former Hagerstown Roundhouse off Burhans Boulevard around 6:15 p.m. Wednesday turned out to be intoxicated rather than injured, Hagerstown City Police said.

Sgt. George Knight said his department was notified by railroad personnel on a passing train that there was a man on the tracks. The train was stopped until police arrived and removed the man from railroad property.

"We took him to a shelter," Knight said, describing him as a man in his 50s.
