According to the babysitter, Elizabeth Peak the dog attacked from outside of the front door, while she was watching the child in her home. Peak said the toddler wandered outside and dropped a water cup near the dog. Peak said this is when the pit bull grabbed the toddler’s leg and Peak said she grabbed the toddler and began kicking at the dog. Hoping the dog would let go of the child. According to Parks this is when Larry Gordon a neighbor came to their assistance. Gordon said he began beating the dog with a stick, but it would not let go of the toddler, so he prided it’s jaw open and called the babysitter to get the little girl. Gordon said the babysitter panicked, when she saw the attack. Gordon said he asked how badly the toddler was injured, since she had clothing that was covering the wounds and Peak said it was bad. Paramedics arriving at the scene of the Norco dog bite attack transported the toddler to Corona Regional Medical Center. Authorities said her condition is unknown. Riverside County Animal Control officers confiscated the pit bull, according to authorities.
