Police say two women suffered personal injuries on the afternoon of October 15 when they were bitten by a pit bull at a Cary apartment complex.
The women, both in their 20s, were inside an apartment at The Lodge at Crossroads on Berry Rose Way, near Piney Plains Road and Walnut Street, when they were attacked by the dog.
Witnesses say that a neighbor used a broom to try and beat the dog away from one of the women.
The women, whose identities were not immediately made available, received transport to WakeMed in Raleigh to undergo treatment for injuries to their lower legs, thighs, and hips, according to police. The injuries were not considered to be life-threatening.
As of October 17, one woman remained in the hospital in fair condition and the other had been released after undergoing treatment.
The dog, a pit bull named Dutch, was removed from the apartment by an animal control officer.
According to Deanna Boone, a spokeswoman for the town of Cary, said that one of the women was a resident at the apartment and the other was visiting.
Police said there was no history of the dog having been a problem before.
