Just after 3 a.m. Pittsburgh Police from Zone 6 and EMS responded to the 3300 block of Motor Street for reports of a woman attacked by a dog inside a residence.
Responding officers found a female who had gained entry to a family member's house when the dog attacked her and bit her on the arm. The woman already had a severe injury to her left index finger that was somehow sustained earlier.
When Police and Medics tried to prepare her for transport to the hospital she refused to wear a mask and became physically aggressive with them, getting blood on one of the officers.
She was taken to the hospital for treatment. Police will be applying for a warrant for her arrest.
The investigation is ongoing.
