Police: Pit Bulls Maul Two In Roseville, Both In Critical Condition

ROSEVILLE (WWJ) – Two people in Roseville are in serious condition after being attacked by a pair of pit bulls inside a home.

Police were called to a home on Normal Street around 9 p.m. Sunday to respond to a woman who was being attacked by a dog.

When police got to the home — a 52-year-old woman – covered in blood met police and said she had been attacked by her son’s pit bull. Authorities say she was bleeding profusely, suffering from numerous and severe bites to her arms, face and head.

The woman told police her husband, 51, was still in the house and had also been attacked by the dogs.

Police and paramedics went to help her husband, who was lying unconscious on the living room floor, “he too was bleeding profusely from his wounds,” said police, but the dog suspected in the attack “was extremely aggressive, not allowing emergency personnel into the home to extricate the victim.”

Police were able to distract the dog long enough for paramedics to get to the man – who was airlifted to the University of Michigan Hospital – he’s listed in extremely critical condition — his wife — in a local hospital, is listed in serious condition.

The Detroit Free Press reporting that the couple had been attacked by the same dog two weeks ago, and their son was issued two tickets in that attack. The woman was hospitalized in that incident and her husband was treated for his wounds and released.

The dogs were removed from the home by animal control in the most recent incident.

An investigation continues and the prosecutors office will determine what, if any, charges are to be filed.
