Three people were injured in a dog attack in Oshawa before three Good Samaritans were able to get hold of the dog.

Witnesses called police about the dog shortly before 7 p.m. on July 24. The dog was loose near Mary St. N and Adelaide Ave., a residential block behind the Ritson Rd. plaza. The dog wounded three people before it was restrained. Police describe their injuries as non-life threatening, though two of them were taken to hospital.

When police arrived, they found three witnesses had managed to get a hold of the dog. Responding officers jumped in to help the Samaritans restrain it. Animal Control soon arrived and took possession of the dog. They’ve since identified the dog’s owner but retain custody of the dog until the investigation is complete.

Police have not specified what breed the dogs was.
