Neighbors: 1 year-old child mauled by pit bulls

- Neighbors say a child, one, was mauled by four pit bulls at an Inkster home on South River Park Saturday around 9 a.m.

Those who saw the scene early in the morning say the child had a bite to the back of the neck and red-faced after the incident.

A man, who did not want to be identified, said he had been threatened by someone who lives at the home after his father spoke about what he saw.

"A child especially... oh my God... you gotta be careful," Nathan Fisher who lives nearby said.

Fisher says crews tried to get all three dogs out right away, but had a challenge with it. "They said that they had four dogs over there... they got three out."

Neighbors say this isn't the first time they've seen police having to deal with an issue on their street.

"I'm very sad to hear that there was a child in the home that was hurt by the animals... but I'm not surprised. We have a pit bull problem in our neighborhood... even this morning there was a pit bull that was on the loose,"

Norma Schropshire said.

Police did not provide comment.
