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.
