Anne Arundel: Pasadena

Boy, 10, mauled by loose pit bull

A 10-year-old Pasadena boy on his way to school was mauled yesterday by a pit bull, Anne Arundel County police said. The dog was euthanized and its owners were charged with two counts of posing a public safety threat after the attack in the 200 block of Whitaker Road. About 7:50 a.m., officers responded to a report of a pit bull and a collie chasing children in the street. A 10-year-old girl told an officer that her friend was being attacked by a dog. The officer found the boy lying on the ground around the corner with a pit bull on top of him. The officer drew his gun, shouted at the dog and it ran away. Later, the officer shot and killed the dog in a nearby yard after it became aggressive. The boy was treated for bites and cuts to his head, face and hands at Baltimore Washington Medical Center. Animal control officers identified the dogs' owners as Maria Rosario Alejandre and Arturo Alejandre Miramontes of the 200 block of Whitaker Road.
