11-year-old attacked by pit bull in New Haven

Police say a 10-year-old boy was mauled by a stray pit bull Friday morning.

Officers were called to 155 Lexington Ave.at 10:40 a.m. for the incident.

The dog's owner is likely to face charges, police said.

Police say the dog's owner will likely face charges once police determine who it is. The dog was loose and attacked him until a passerby separated the two and held onto the dog until animal control officers arrived to retrieve it, according to police spokesman Officer David Hartman.

The child sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries and is being treated at Yale-New Haven Hospital. The child is expected to survive his injuries, police said.

Neighbors told Channel 3 that they've seen a pit bull roaming Lexington Avenue unleashed. "Some of the dogs are quite big that are unleashed", neighbor Sarah Kwan said. The dog was loose and it is unclear who the owner is, according to the release.
