Lyons - A boy is recovering after being attacked by two pit bulls Monday morning as he was walked to a bus stop in suburban Lyons.
The dogs live in the neighborhood, and now the boy's mother wants the dogs removed.
Yevion Joyner was on his way to school when he ended up needing to be rushed to the hospital. The 12-year old was attacked by his neighbors' two pit bulls as he was walking to the bus stop.
"I saw two dogs come running toward me and right there I started to run and they were so big, they jumped on me and I fell," said Yevion.
The dogs ripped his clothes and tore into his skin. He suffered scratches to his nose and needed stitches in his lip and arm.
