A woman was critically injured after being attacked by at least two pit bulls near Auburn Tuesday morning.
Police were called to the 28800 block of 45th Place S in Auburn just after 11 a.m. after receiving reports of a woman being attacked by two pit bull dogs. A second victim was also reportedly attacked after trying to help the woman who was attacked first.
According to news reports about the incident, the dogs belong to people who have allegedly been squatting at a house near Thomas Jefferson High School. The woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with what are believed to be critical injuries.
