A woman pushing a pram containing her two-year-old child and two police officers were attacked by two American pit bulls roaming the streets of Guildford West.
The woman, who did not want to be named, was pushing a pram with her son Tony inside it along Robertson Road last Thursday about 5.35pm, when two dogs charged at her.
She grabbed the child from the pram and the dogs attacked her, one biting her right leg.
"Really, I thought the baby was finished, to be honest. The dog was just standing there in his face," the 43-year-old woman told media outlets.
"It was terrifying. I was scared. I wasn't really worried about myself, I was more worried about the baby."
The woman said she started screaming to people across the road "help, this dog is attacking me" and she ran terrified into a nearby house.
The woman was treated at the scene by paramedics before she was taken to Westmead Hospital.
Tony was not hurt.
Police found the two large dogs, highly agitated and aggressive, in a nearby street. One officer was bitten on the hand when he attempted to catch one of the dogs and a second officer was also bitten on the leg but was not injured.
The dogs were eventually herded into the yard of a home in Wisdom Street and detained.
RSPCA officers and police tranquilised the dogs. The owners are overseas and the dogs had escaped from a Wisdom Street house where they were being cared for temporarily.
The mother reportedly said the owners should be fined or jailed.
