Dog owner answers to judge after pit bull mauls child

AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

The owner of a pit bull that mauled a child in Akron is expected to be in court today.

Andre Brown is charged with having a vicious dog, not having a secured dog, not having his pit bull registered and not having pit bull insurance.

The dog ran after a group of kids last Thursday. Most of the children were able to escape the dog by jumping on an SUV, but a 6-year-old boy was attacked.

Although frantic 911 callers expressed concern someone might be killed, the animal warden did not go to the scene.

The dog has been in quarantine since attacking the boy, who is now recovering.
