Kisha Fuller said her fiance, Tomario Johnson, took her Chihuahua out to the backyard. As the two were walking in, she said the pit bulls rushed in from behind and into the home where they grabbed the Chihuahua.
Fuller grabbed her five-month-old son from his bouncer and shut him in another room while Johnson forced the dogs from the home. Her Chihuahua, a pet since 2012, died following the attack.
When she called the Monroe Police Department to report the incident, Fuller learned officers already were in the neighborhood on a second report. Brown said a woman was out with her dog when she encountered the two pit bulls. The woman was bit during the attack and was transported to St. Francis for treatment.
The MPD has located both pit bulls in the Town and Country neighborhood. The owners said their dogs “got out” and went missing Monday. They surrendered the pair for quarantine. "If they haven't got them, I'm so scared that something may happen, especially if I have my son with me," she said.
When Johnson left for work since the attack, he carried a stun gun while Fuller watched from the window. Brown said members of the HEAT team were going door-to-door in the neighborhood on Tuesday in attempt to track down the dogs. As of 4:30 p.m., the search was ongoing. Anyone with any information regarding the pit bulls can contact the Monroe Police Department at 318-329-2600 or Crime Stoppers at 318-388-2274.
