SHADY SIDE, Md. (WJZ) — Three women were injured by an aggressive pit bull/lab mix in Anne Arundel County.

The attack happened Sunday just after 8:30 p.m. in the 4900-block of Filbert Drive in Shady Side.

Police say it started with a 29-year-old woman. Authorities say she went to pet the 2-year-old dog on a cable lead in the front yard of a house when the dog bit her and a 15-year-old female, who attempted to stop the attack.

The 29-year-old woman was bitten on her arm and leg. She was transported to Anne Arundel Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.

In addition, a 56-year-old female also intervened and sustained a very minor injury before the dog ran off.  She was treated at the scene, along with the 15-year-old.

The dog’s owners contained the animal until Animal Control officers arrived on scene and took possession of the dog.

The investigation is ongoing.
