VAN NUYS, CA (April 2, 2024)Four individuals, among them a child, became victims of a dog attack on Monday night in their home located in the 13000 block of Runnymede Street, Van Nuys, Southern California. 


The attack, which has shaken the local community, prompted an immediate response from the Los Angeles police and firefighters shortly after 10:30 p.m., with the situation necessitating additional ambulances due to the severity of the injuries inflicted by the dog bites.


Local news agencies reported that the victims were transported for medical treatment, highlighting the involvement of a juvenile among those affected. Despite the prompt response, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Cervantes has remained reserved regarding specific details about the victims, including their ages or genders.
