The owner of a pit bull that mauled two children, one as she was strapped in a car seat, has been charged in the attack.

Luis Oma Colon-Colon, 42, of Pottsville, Pennsylvania  was charged with attacks causing severe injury, reckless endangering and other counts.

Police say a two-year-old girl, Ruby Warfel, and her five-year-old brother, Charlie, were attacked by a black and white 66-pound dog while their pregnant mother, Margaret Warfel, tried in vain to pull the animal off.
