An el­derly woman and her 1-year-old grand­daugh­ter were at­tacked by two pit bulls on Spillers Drive late Mon­day morn­ing.

The woman was walk­ing her grand­daugh­ter in a stroller when the two pit bulls re­port­edly ran to­ward them, bark­ing. Ac­cord­ing to 1st Lt. Mark Mitchell with the New­ton County Sher­iff’s Depart­ment, the dogs first went af­ter the child and her grand­mother swung the stroller around be­hind her­self to keep the child safe. When she did so she was al­legedly bit­ten on the an­kle and calf.
