Michigan Woman Attacked By Pit Bull, Blames Boyfriend

Posted on October 30th, 2012 No Comments

In Newport, Michigan a domestic dispute at a mobile home park ended with a woman sustaining numerous bites from a pit bull. The dispute unfolded at the Elizabeth Woods Mobile Home Park between a 42-year-old woman and her 48-year-old boyfriend.

According to the woman, the argument was centered around the ownership of a vehicle, and slowly began to escalate. The woman’s boyfriend became very upset with her, and allegedly started choking her with his hands. She almost lost consciousness due to the severity of his grip around her neck. After he let go of her throat, he ordered his pit bull to go after the woman.

The pit bull followed the directions of his owner, and began to attack the woman. She sustained more than 20 dog bites all over her body, including on her hands, legs, and both feet. Police were called to the scene of the dog attack, and the woman was taken to Mercy Memorial Hospital to be treated for her bite injuries.

The woman’s boyfriend left the scene of the accident before officers arrived. One patrol officer who knocked on the front door of the home could hear the pit bull scratching at the door from the inside. An investigation into the accusations and domestic violence is ongoing at this time, and officers plan to seek felony assault charges against the boyfriend.
