Toronto police say they are looking for two large dogs and their owner after an attack that left a woman with “life-altering” injuries.
Police say they responded to an animal complaint in the area of Martin Grove Road and John Garland Boulevard shortly after 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.
They say a woman was waiting at a bus stop when she was attacked by two off-leash dogs.
Investigators say the woman tried to defend herself with a personal shopping cart but the dogs dragged her to the ground and kept attacking her.
They say the woman managed to hide in a passerby’s vehicle, and was taken to hospital to be treated for serious, but not life-threatening injuries.
Police say someone followed the dogs and saw them attack a cyclist and try to attack a resident in their yard, as well as a TTC Wheel-Trans operator who was able to close the doors in time.
The dogs are described as black and white with a larger build.
Police have released an image and say there is a concern for public safety.
