“They knocked her down then the dogs started chewing on her face and blood started coming everywhere. They ripped her jaw off,” said nine-year-old Moustapha Drame, the victim’s brother who witnessed the attack.
Responding officers arrived at the scene when the dogs were still attacking the child on the sidewalk. Police said four officers distracted the dogs and then fired shots, killing both of them. A third dog, not involved in the attack, is now in the custody of the SPCA.
24-year-old Zontae Irby owns the dogs and was arrested early Thursday morning. Police searched Irby’s home and charged him with weapons under disability, drug abuse and drug trafficking. Charges are pending in relation to the dog attack, Cincinnati Police say.
