Man cited after pit bull attack

•NORCROSS - An Arizona man was cited last week after his two pit bulls attacked a resident on Estates Court in Norcross.

A 40-year-old man told an officer that the two dogs cornered him in his backyard on Nov. 7, but he was able to escape without injury. The dogs were running freely in the victim's yard when officers arrived at 1:45 p.m., according to a police report. They charged at an officer, who fired in their direction and scared the pit bulls back.

Animal Control officers impounded the dogs and cited the owner, Matthew Ricardo Davis Jr., 21, of Norcross, for allegedly leaving them unleashed. Davis was also jailed after a check of his driver's license revealed he was wanted in DeKalb County.
