HERKIMER, N.Y. (AP) - A 12-year-old central New York girl is recovering after she was attacked by two pit bulls while waiting for her school bus.

Herkimer police charged the dogs’ owner, 25-year-old Aaron Brown, with reckless endangerment on Monday. He was then turned over to police in nearby St. Johnsville, where he faces a trespassing charge.

The girl told police the dogs attacked her May 31 without provocation while they were running loose. Firefighters responding to a 911 call found the girl with puncture wounds and broken bones in her arm. She’s currently undergoing treatment.

Police say Brown didn’t have the two pit bulls licensed.

It couldn’t be learned from Herkimer County prosecutors if Brown has a lawyer who could comment on the charges.

The dogs are currently being held by a local humane society.
