The police said Tuesday that they are investigating an April 29 incident in which a PIT BULL attacked a woman and her dog in a backyard shared by the woman and the owner of the pit bull, according to Commander Thomas A. Verdi.
Just after 10 a.m., the police were dispatched to 95 Sission St., where they found Lisa Villucci, 43, lying on the ground with a T-shirt wrapped around her upper left arm and dried blood all over her side. A man from an upstairs apartment said he had heard screaming, went to the yard and found Villucci on the ground, covered in blood with a large cut on her arm. He took off his shirt and wrapped her arm.
Another woman who lives in the building, Nicole Stellar, told the police that, when she heard screaming, she went outside and saw Villucci being attacked by her red-nose pit bull, Verdi said. She said she grabbed the dog and took it inside and locked it in a cage, according to Verdi.
Villucci suffered a large cut on her upper left arm and bite wounds to her left hand, upper back, thigh, foot and forearm. She was taken by rescue to Rhode Island Hospital. Her sister took her dog to a vet.
The pit bull is quarantined while the incident is under investigation.
