HARLEM, Manhattan (WABC) -- A dog walker was viciously mauled while walking the dog she was assigned to early Sunday morning.
Police said that two officers were driving near Lenox Avenue and 111th street around 9:50 am when they spotted a woman being attacked by a pit bull.
The officers immediately jumped out of their car and did their best to separate the woman from the attacking dog.
Police eventually pried the dog off of the woman and eventually turned the pit bull over to the Emergency Service Unit.
The dog was then sent to a pound in the area.
The two officers and the dog walker were all transported to St Luke's Hospital, where they were treated for bites and scratches.
