STOCKTON - Animal control officers are trying to decide whether a pit bull should be allowed back home after it attacked two people.

It happened Monday on Sheridan Way in Stockton near the intersection of Pershing Avenue and Benjamin Holt Drive.

Sheriff's investigators say the pit bull first bit the female homeowner in the neck and then her son in the arm.

They say it wasn't provoked.

"It is unusual for any breed. I know it's a pit bull, but that being said, unprovoked attacks on family members are rare," said Lt. Todd Wright, San Joaquin Sheriff's Department.

San Jaoquin County Animal Control will decide if the dog is allowed to stay in the home or be removed.

The dog is now being kept away from people and is muzzled.
