OMAHA — An Omaha couple and their miniature poodle were attacked by two pit bull-type dogs, sending the woman to a hospital with bites to her face and hands, police said.

The attack happened just before 7 p.m. Sunday in the Benson community as the woman and her husband were walking their dog.

Police said the two pit bull-mixes charged the couple and their dog from a house across the street. The woman’s husband said when she bent down to pick up her dog, the pit bulls knocked her to the ground and attacked her and her dog.

The husband then grabbed the poodle and ran, drawing the pit bulls away from his wife.

The man suffered bites to his arm, and the poodle underwent surgery for injuries to its leg, authorities said.

Police and the Nebraska Humane Society responded to the scene. The pit bulls weren't wearing collars, and the gate to their fenced yard was open. It was unclear whether the pit bulls were captured.
