Update: Police Investigating Subway Pit Bull Attack
This story is an update on the story we posted on earlier today. New details have been released related to this story, so we are bringing you an update.
Police are looking into the pit bull attack that occurred on the subway in Lower Manhattan. The attack happened when the dog latched onto a 22-year-old woman’s show.
Authorities are looking for the dog’s owner at this time.
A witness on the train, TahSyi Kyng, took a video of the incident. He said in the video that, “You should’ve had your dog in a bag, kennel, muzzle.”
The accident occurred at around 4 in the evening on Friday.
An escalating argument between the owner and another woman on the train, the dog attacked the woman. Other passengers on the train can be heard in the video yelling at the owner to have the dog release its hold. The dog did eventually let go, and the owner threw the shoe the dog ripped off at other passengers.
As the train got into the Wall Street stop, the owner could be seen getting off the train and leaving with the pitbull.
The dog is reported to have not been vicious.
