Roving pit bull dogs attack 2 people in Seattle

WASHINGTON -- Two pit bull dogs running loose attacked a 3-year-old girl and 74-year-old woman Thursday night in south Seattle.

Police say the little girl, her sister and mother had just left church and were trying to climb into their car when one dog bit the girl in the face. The second dog bit the girl on the head, leaving two puncture wounds. Some men in the group chased off the dogs.

About a block away they knocked down the 74-year-old woman. She was not bitten, but she hit her head on the ground and also injured a hand.

Fire department medics took the girl and the woman to a hospital for treatment.

Police searched the area but couldn't find the two dogs. Animal Control is investigating.
