Pit Bull Attack On S.I. Man: Dog Owner Charged With Assault
According to Police, McNair’s dogs attacked Henry Piotrowski, right outside his home on John Street in Port Richmond on July 1 ,2008. Piotrowski is being hospitalized and is in critical condition after having one of his legs amputated.
He could have been even more serious if hi neighbor had not heard the attack who then using a knife chased the dogs away, but this was not before the dogs had severely injured Piotrowski.
Local residents said the dogs’ owner should be held responsible.
According to McNair’s friend, Anthony Mahoney, feels the dogs, must have been provoked causing them to attack like they did.
The dogs were tracked down at McNair’s house and were tranquilized by animal care and control. Late in the day, the dogs were tested for rabies.
McNair was previously a sex offender. He was released from prison in 2004 after serving time on a third degree rape charge.
McNair is expected to be called before court on Thursday morning.
