The Lakewood Scoop » 3 Hospitalized after 2 Separate Pit Bull Attacks » The heartbeat of the lakewood community

Three people were injured, one seriously, after being attacked by a pit bull in two separate incidents in the last 24 hours, officials confirm to TLS.

At about 2 PM this afternoon, Lakewood police responded to a home for the reports of a dog attack.

Upon arrival, police learned that a homeowner was holding his infant child when he was attacked by his 2-year-old pit bull.

The man was reportedly bitten on both his arms and thigh, and suffered over 20 puncture wounds. The infant was not injured.

The woman, officials say, was also bitten, though her injuries were reportedly not as severe.

The male was transported to Ocean Medical Center in Brick. The woman went on her own to another hospital, officials say.

The dog was taken from the home by Animal Control, and will be put down upon the request of the family, officials told TLS.

In a separate incident shortly after midnight last night, a child was attacked by a pit bull inside his home, sources told TLS. The child, bitten in his lower back, was transported to Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus for treatment. Further details of that incident were not immediately available.
