Bride, Husband Viciously Attacked at Wedding Reception
DENVER — A bride and her new husband were viciously attacked on their wedding day in Denver. Now police are looking for the man accused of not only beating the bride, but sicking his roommate’s dog on her.
This attack happened early Sunday morning, Aug. 12.
It should have been the happiest day of their lives. But Brittany Schult and Jorge Cortez-Trinidad’s wedding day was one of the most frightening.
“Why would someone I consider to be my brother, do this to me?” questioned Schult-Cortez, 22.
Close friend Joel Nevarez, 21, got angry at their reception held at a relative’s home. He left and returned with a dog around 12:30 a.m.
“I tried to talk him down, walk him home,” Schult-Cortez told news station KDVR in Denver. “He saw my husband jump the fence. He said, ‘Sick her Skylo. Sick her Skylo.’”
The dog knocked Schult-Cortez to the ground, biting her shoulder and back.
Her husband, who was inside at the time, said he heard screaming and crying outside. When he walked out, he told police he saw “his wife being drug by her hair by our friend’s pit bull.”
When her new husband tried getting the dog off her, it bit him three times on his thigh.
