“The pit bull bit his face and then they were trying to get him off of him and then the little baby got bit too,” a young neighbor, Timothy Deremiah, recalled.

“It went to the little baby and then it went back to the boy,” he said. “The little boy… he had to get stitches all right here on his face.”

Both boys were rushed to the emergency room.

The 8-year-old pit bull has been quarantined and will be transferred to a humane facility.
