PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – A large white pitbull has been quarantined at the Providence Animal Shelter, after it escaped from its home and bit three children, then busted into a barber shop and wreaked havoc.
According to police, the dog got out of a house located at 22 Suffolk Street around 6:30 p.m. Friday.
The owners of the dog, Octavio Taglirine and Lisa Silvio, told police that their dog got loose when their child opened a door.
“We’re very, very, very, very sorry. It wasn’t intentional. It was an accident. The dog lived with two kids, we don’t know what happened,” Octavio said.
After roaming around the neighborhood, the dog burst into L&J Barber Shop while chasing a person.
“Yea, it was scary here because we didn’t have nothing to hit the dog and he was trying to bite everybody here.” The incident was caught on camera.
