GREENWOOD, S.C. -

A child was sent to the emergency room with broken facial bones after being bit by a dog in Greenwood last Friday.

According to an incident report from Greenwood Police, they were called to a home on Trakas Avenue 8:30 p.m. where they found the child with bite marks to the face and forehead.

The owner of the dog told authorities that before the incident happened, several kids were pushing the child in a stroller when they came to visit.

When she opened the door, Taylor says the Rottweiler ran outside and started to play with the children. Soon after, the dog bit the child in the face, the report states.

The dog was taken to the animal shelter where it will be held for 10 days and the owner was cited for Dogs Running At Large.

Hospital staff told police the child had multiple broken bones of the face and that the child’s teeth were pushed into its cheek.

The incident was passed along state investigators.
