Layton resident Cherie Bloom was walking her dog along Reid Drive near Main Street (1450 North) when two pit bulls reportedly approached her on the road. The pit bulls allegedly attacked Bloom’s dog, according to a press release updated by Layton Police spokesman Shawn Horton at 3:32 p.m. Monday afternoon.
A resident called 911, reported hearing a woman yelling for help in the area of 1448 Reid Drive. Two Layton residents, Joel Haro and his girlfriend Darlene Moroncini, were driving by and stopped to help Brown, the press release said.
Haro and Moroncini allegedly separated the pit bull dogs from Brown’s dog, the release said.
In the meantime, Officer Travis Rapp arrived and was able to grab one of the pit bull’s collars until Davis County Animal Control arrived. The second dog ran off, the release said.
However, the second dog was found a short time later, Horton said Monday afternoon.
Brown and her Boxer were injured and required medical attention. Davis County Animal Control is investigating, the release said.
As of press time, police were still attempting to locate the pit bulls’ owner.
