One of her neighbors called police at about 6:20 p.m. to report that two dark gray pit bulls were attacking the 41-year-old woman in front of the home at 3000 Whitesand Drive, Sgt. Ronnie Lopez said.

The neighbor reportedly threw stones at the dogs to try to prevent the attack, he said. The animals ran south on Whitesand Drive.

The woman suffered major injuries, but they are not life threatening, Lopez said.
Animal control took over the investigation.

Police are warning community members that the dogs have not been
captured. They have clipped ears and may have light gray spots, Lopez said.
