A Youngstown man was attacked by dogs on the city’s West Side.

Brian Geiger, 19, was getting the mail at his Portland Avenue home Wednesday when he was attacked by two pit bull terriers that escaped their fenced-in yard.

Geiger and neighbors stayed in their homes to avoid another attack.

The dogs’ owner, 49-year-old Rose Helmick, arrived home and was able to corral her dogs. She faces fourth-degree felony charges for attacks by each dog.

Dog Warden Dave Nelson said dog calls increase at this time of year, noting this one was of 16 calls about vicious dogs Wednesday.
