A 22-year-old young woman who was working at a store in Gzira suffered extensive damage to her face and lips after a pit bull attacked her.
She had been kneeling on the floor and restocking a fridge in the store when a man with an unmasked pit bull entered the store.
The dog then attacked her on the spot. The man allegedly fled the scene after his dog’s attack.
The 22-year-old has since undergone three surgeries on her face.
The incident happened Thursday at 9:15pm in Gzira Street, Gzira, according to the police.
The family have appealed to the public for help in capturing the man, with some people commenting that he was locally known in Gzira.
Many people were angered that the man didn’t seem to care that his dog had attacked the woman, and indeed did not offer her help and left the scene of the attack.
