Police say the first attack was Oct. 26 and the animal was scared away by another person. On Nov. 1 a 9-year-old child suffered a minor injury when jumped on by a coyote.
On Nov. 11, an officer stopped at a traffic light saw a coyote crossing the intersection behind a jogger and was able to scare the animal way by using the patrol car's siren (watch video, around the :25 second mark).
Police believe the same coyote is responsible for each attack and say the department's animal services unit is trying to capture it.
