A 13-year-old boy was bitten by a pitbull Tuesday afternoon on West Seminary Street.

The boy was taken by ambulance to Fisher-Titus Medical Center but Norwalk Police Capt. Eric Hipp (pictured with the dog) said the bite did not appear to be serious.

The dog broke out of his collar and bit the boy, according to a witness, who helped get the dog away from the boy.

Hipp said the dog will be quarantined for 10 days by its owner, who lives at 37 W. Seminary St. The dog was up to date with its shots.

The boy is home from the hospital and doing fine, according to the Norwalk Police Department.
