Dog Attack


Pit bull bites Rock Hill man, 69, while walking



A Rock Hill man was bitten by his neighbor’s pit bull Tuesday, police say.

The 69-year-old man was walking along Dogwood Circle, where he lives, when the dog ran into the roadway and bit him on the calf, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report. EMS arrived on scene to treat the man.

Deputies took picture of the injury, which showed a large, open wound, the report states. The man didn’t want to be taken to the hospital, but said he would go for treatment after an EMS worked told him needed stitches.

Animal Control arrived and said they would cite the dog’s owner for violation of the county leash law, the report states. They spoke with the dog’s owner, but the report does not indicate if he was charged.
