According to police, 52-year-old Brenda Guerrero was in the backyard of her home trying to put a sweater on a dog named Scarface when the dog began attacking her.
Brenda’s husband heard the attack and ran out to try pulling Scarface off his wife when the dog began attacking him.
The couple’s son, 22-year-old Antoine Harris, then joined the fray and began stabbing Scarface in the head and neck.
All three managed to get inside the house, leaving Scarface in the backyard. When Animal control and police arrived at the home, Scarface was shot with a tranquilizer dart.
“You think you kill me with darts? I take your fucking darts!” screamed Scarface before making his way into the house where two children were in a back room.
Scarface was finally subdued after police shot him with a bean bag gun, a stun gun, and a “catch pole.”
“Officers responding said the dog was pretty aggressive,” said Eddy Durkin with the Tampa Bay police. “When they Tased the dog, the dog was still pulling away and was able to release the prongs from the Taser.”
All three family members were taken to the hospital to treat their injuries. While Brenda’s injuries are believed to be serious, none of injuries the family suffered were considered life-threatening.
At this point it is unclear if Scarface will have to be euthanized.Tags: Brenda Guerrero, Crime, dog, Florida, pit bull, Scarface, sweater, When Animals Attack
