Manor police say a 7-year-old boy was the victim of an unprovoked dog attack on Monday night.
Police said the child was playing in the yard of a home in the 14400 block of Callan Court around 8:08 p.m. when the dog, a pit bull mix, ran out of a residence as its owner opened a door.
â€œA home security video obtained by Manor Police from the dog ownerâ€™s neighbor shows the dog chasing the child and attacking him as he runs away,â€ police said. â€œIn the video, the owner of the dog is seen following the dog and attempting the pull the dog off of the child.â€
The boy was taken to an area hospital with bites to his left and right upper thigh and the left side of his back.
The dogâ€™s owner agreed to surrender the animal to authorities, and it was taken to the Austin Animal Center and placed on a 10-day rabies watch quarantine.
Police said the owner has been cited for having an unregistered dog, unprovoked attack, failing to have proof of rabies vaccination and animal at large
