In a similar but unrelated incident, a four-year-old boy was allegedly viciously attacked by a bull-mastiff-type dog while playing at a friend's house in the Norris Green area, Liverpool, Merseyside, England on Saturday, Aug. 13, as previously reported.

The victim, an unnamed 4-year-old boy, had reportedly gone to visit a friend in Wellesbourne Place on Saturday, Aug. 13. He was playing at the friend's house when he was allegedly set upon by a bull-mastiff type dog. The canine reportedly viciously attacked the child and mauled him, leaving the victim with severe, life-changing wounds to his face and head.

Upon hearing the child's loud screams for help, a neighbor rushed to the scene to help. He bravely stepped in and pulled the violent dog away from the boy before seeking help. The boy was then immediately rushed to a hospital where he was admitted in critical condition.

Following the incident, a 31-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of owning an out-of-control dog. The officers also seized the violent dog for the safety of the community.
