Lake Elsinore Man Attacked By His Own Pit Bulls; Two Arrested

A man received severe injuries and two women were arrested for interfering with deputies Tuesday during a pit bull attack in Lake Elsinore.

Sheriff's deputies were called to a residence in the 18000 block of Honey Lane at 4:13 p.m. in response to a report that a male adult was being attacked by his five pit bulls. The caller told dispatch the male victim, a 53-year-old white male from Lake Elsinore, lived at the location, which was surrounded by a chain link fence.

According to police, the attack was occurring on the property in the front yard. Neighbors in the area attempted to assist the male by ramming their vehicles into the gate, which allowed some of the dogs to exit the property.

Deputies arrived and located the victim with severe, non-life-threatening injuries to his arms, hands and face. Medical personnel arrived and rendered aid to the victim, who was then transported to a local hospital for his injuries.

Prior to conducting a protective search of the residence, deputies encountered two uncooperative female adults who were subsequently arrested for interfering with the investigation. They are Aurielle Branca, 20, of Lake Elsinore and Gloria Osborne, 34, a transient.

Deputies secured the dogs on the property, at which time officers from Animal Control arrived and took possession of four full-sized pit bulls and two small pit bull puppies.
