Dec 23, 2014 Chicago Boy and Mother Attacked by Pit bull in Roseland

Chicago - A 10-year-old boy and his mother were both injured after being attacked by a pit bull that escaped from its homein the South Side Roseland neighborhood Tuesday afternoon.

Devon was bitten in the back, with a wound deep enough to require stitches.  Devon’s mother Lasheta Amos opened the door. But at that point the pit bull turned on her. His mom’s arm was ripped apart and required surgery.

Officer Williams says the owner didn’t receive a citation because he turned the dog over to animal care and control.

CBS 2 reached out to animal control about the fate of the dog but didn’t hear back.
