Relatives Arrested in Boy’s Death
Colton, CA – Police reported Monday night that a 2-year old boy was killed by up to five pit bull-mixes in Colton. The attack occurred about 5:30 pm at a home in the 700 block of West Citrus Street. The boy was “suffering from extensive wounds to the upper body,” according to a police statement released Monday night. He was taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 6:07 pm, according to San Bernardino County Coroner’s officials.
A woman who rents a room from the boy’s grandmother told abc7.com, “It was ugly. His face was all eaten up. He was eaten from the face. He had no clothes.” She said the boy’s grandmother and uncle were babysitting the boy, along with his older brother and her two children. A neighbor said he believes the boy “jumped out of the window, I’m guessing to play with the dogs.” The woman said she was horrified when she saw the boy lying in the backyard after being attacked. – DogsBite.org
