Authorities say a 2-year-old child suffered facial injured following a dog attack in Spring Valley on Thursday afternoon.
Sources tell TOT that the 3-year-old child was playing outside his home located at 68 N. Cole Ave with his family members at around 6:00PM, when suddenly he was viciously attacked by a Pitt Bull.
Rockland Hatzolah transported the child to the hospital with facial injuries.
The incident which can be seen in the attached video is nothing less than horror. Nothing provoked the dog to attack the child.
Neighbors tell TOT that this is not the first time this dog attacked innocent people.
As can be seen in the video, a prior incident was also captured on security cameras.

Local residents are furious at authorities as they claim police were contacted about this dog in the past.
To make matters worse, police took a report at the scene and “punished” the dog by telling the owner that the dog can’t be outside for 10 days.
Local residents contacted elected officials and the media. Later this evening, police arrived back at the scene and took the dog away.
Horrific. No child should suffer this. No animal (or person) should ever be in a position to do this to anyone, certainly not a child. https://t.co/90RSDrqdHQ
