SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A pair of people broke into a house, spent the night there, and then allowed one of their dogs to bite a neighbor child and a police officer Sunday.

A neighbor reported the trespassing about 11:45 a.m. today at a home on Epsilon Street near South 40th Street in the Shelltown neighborhood of Southeast San Diego. The neighbor told police that an apparent couple had smashed the window of a home and stayed there overnight, San Diego Police officer Jane Jacobsen said..

The couple had three pit bulls with them, two grown and one puppy.

One of the dogs broke through a fence a bit a boy in the hand. The pit bull also bit a police officer in the hand, Jacobsen said.

The victims were transported to local hospitals and were treated for non-life threatening injuries, said.

The man was released but the woman was arrested on outstanding charges.

Their dogs were handed over to Animal Services, Jacobsen said.
