    Riley O'Donnell was walking and recording video of her own dog when she heard a man screaming, then saw the two dogs coming toward her.

    "The pit bull started coming down the hill going to chase me, so I went running to my car," O'Donnell said. "There’s kids playing at the park, the dogs go running through the park, go up to the little girl, sniff the little girl and then run away."

    She said she called 911 as soon as she could, then checked on the man.

    "He had his forearm really wrapped up by the firefighters and then his leg as well and there was blood on the ground," O'Donnell said.

    Police and animal control officials found both dogs.

    The owner agreed to surrender the dogs to a humane animal rescue. It's not clear if the victim will press any charges.
