Modesto police have the owner of two pit bulls jailed, after the dogs mauled a 4 year old boy in an alley this weekend. The boy is in serious condition at Oakland Children´s Hospital.
The victim and his twin brother were staying with their grandmother, and had walked into the alley with their 13 year old uncle when the dogs attacked. Two passers-by subdued the animals and took the boy to safety.
21 year old Richardo Alvarez told police the dogs apparently got out of his back yard. They´re impounded, and Alvarez is charged with a felony for having an animal that caused bodily harm to a human.
