A child suffered serious injuries Sunday in a dog attack on the city's west side.
It happened about noon in the 300 block of South Powell Avenue, 10TV's Tanisha Mallett reported.
Resident Tony Marcum said he heard screaming and went outside to see a dog attacking a young child.
"You just heard screaming and I walked out there and there was a whole bunch of people and I saw the dog on a little kids neck," Marcum said.
Marcum ran back into his home and grabbed a knife.
"I came back here and lifted the dog by his tail and just stabbed him and it was over," Marcum said.
The child, whose age and identity were not immediately available, was transported in critical condition to Nationwide Children's Hospital with bites to the neck. He has undergone surgery and could be released from the hospital on Monday, Mallett reported.
The owner of the pit bull mix will be charged with failure to confine the animal and failure to insure a vicious dog.
The dog had to be euthanized because of its injuries.
Marcum was not charged in connection with stabbing the dog, Mallett reported.
