A Pit Bull dog attacked a 9-year old child this evening in
Severna Park Pasadena. The attack appears to have been unprovoked as the child was riding his bike with his mother on Armstrong Lane when the dog bit him in the leg. He was transported to Johns Hopkins Pediatric Center for treatment.
The animal was seized by officers from Anne Arundel County Animal Control. Police investigating the incident believe that the dog is known to the family and they do not know what caused the dog to attack.
Earlier this month, a Severna Park child was attacked by a Pit Bull while playing lacrosse in Shady Side.
