SAND SPRINGS — A Sand Springs man exiting his basement-level apartment was attacked by his upstairs neighbor’s pit bull on Tuesday, authorities said. Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the incident after another neighbor fatally stabbed the dog.
Jeremy Byrd, 31, was leaving his apartment in the 800 block of Long Street around 10:30 p.m. when his upstairs neighbor’s pit bull latched onto his left arm, said Tulsa County Sheriff’s Major Shannon Clark.
When Byrd was unable to free himself, he dragged himself and the dog to a neighboring house for help, Clark said.
