KING WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) - A child is listed in serious condition at the hospital after he was bitten on the neck and hands by a neighbor's dog.

King William County Sheriff Jeff Walton said two children, ages eight and nine, were chased by a neighbor's pit bull Sunday afternoon along Corann Drive in the Oak Springs subdivision.

Witnesses said the boy was on the front porch, pounding on the door. A neighbor scared the dog off. The kids were pulled inside.

A neighbor said that younger girl suffered injuries, and lost a finger.

Animal Control Deputies seized the dog as part of their investigation. At this point, no charges have been filed in this case.
