NORWALK - An elderly man is recovering after a pit bull attacked him in Norwalk yesterday morning.

The man is suffering from various injuries, including a bite to his ankle.

Police say they will likely put down the pit bull, which has been involved in several attacks in the area. Neighbor Angel Dorleans says the dog is known to have bitten people at least four times.

Investigators say the dog's owner is facing minor charges and willingly turned the animal over to them.
