A man in the 200 block of Garland Ave. was chased by three pit bulls Tuesday.
The man was collecting scrap metal from trash along Garland Avenue when he was approached by three pit bull dogs. He attempted to run away but grabbed a metal pole from the back of a pickup and swung it at the dogs.
Dayton Police were called to the scene and also had difficulty corralling the dogs. The Animal Control Center responded as well and were able to capture the aggressive animals.
