Daily Voice is running down some of the top stories of 2017, leading up to the most popular on Sunday, Dec. 31.

This year's theme: leaving 2017 on a high note. For every sad story, there's a happy one on its heels.

These are the stories that topped news in September:

MARATHON MASTURBATOR

A spectator in pajamas who witnesses said suddenly dropped his pants and began masturbating in front of dozens of marathon runners on an Emerson street was identified by police Monday as a 55-year-old borough man.

HERO DOG

A Maywood police dog helped authorities identify the hit-and-run driver who killed a woman waiting for a bus.

Police in North Bergen "specifically reached out for Zoey because of the bloodhound's extreme tracking skills" after Luisa Valdes, 59, of Union City, was struck by a Hyundai Santa Fe, Maywood Police Chief David Pegg said.
