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.
So fast. “I was about to unbuckle my little girl from her car seat when the dog bolted across the street and jumped into the open van door. It all happened so fast,” Warfel wrote in a GoFundMe page she set up for her children.
Screams. Warfel jumped onto the dog to try and help her son. Finally, people heard her screams and began to help, but one man who was holding a knife told her that there was no way he could bring himself to harm the dog, despite the fact that it was attacking a child.
