HEMET - At least two people were bitten by a pit bull that got loose on Monday, Jan. 21 near a Hemet apartment complex and started chasing passers-by.

The attack was reported about 4:35 p.m. in the 800 block of Douglas Court, near Johnston Avenue, according to the Hemet Fire Department.

Paramedics were sent to the location, along with police officers, to help the victims, whose identities were not released.

The aggressive pit bull was running loose with another canine, but the second dog apparently did not pose a threat, according to reports from the scene.

Police officers were attempting to locate the dogs and their owner a half-hour after the pedestrians were bitten, but it was not immediately clear whether the canines had been seized.
