There are a few more details in the case of a Fayetteville woman who told police she suffered personal injuries from being attacked by a pair of pit bulls in the Bonnie Doone area on the afternoon of August 2.
Police officers who responded to the scene said that 45-year-old Phyllis Ward sustained multiple puncture wounds to her legs because of dog bites.
Ward told police that she had been attacked by the dogs about 3:30 p.m. along Patton and Grooms streets.
Upon arrival, the officers came under an attempted attack by one of the dogs. One officer shot the dog, which fled into the woods, where it was later found dead and turned over to Animal Services.
The dog had no ID tags or collar, so it was unknown whether it was rabid, police say.
Ward received transport to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center for treatment. Police say she is also to undergo treatment for rabies.
