A two-month-old boy was hospitalized Tuesday in critical condition with injuries to his face and broken bones after he was mauled by a pit bull at a home in Woodland Hills.

Los Angeles police officers were notified about 5 p.m. Monday of the attack that occurred earlier in the day and that the boy had been taken to a hospital and was expected to survive, Sgt. Zoltan Mako of the Los Angeles Police Department told the Daily News.

A delivery person had come to the door of a home in the 22600 block of Clarendon Street and when a parent answered, the pit bull escaped a pen and mauled the baby, Mako said.

Los Angeles Animal Services visited the home Monday night to determine what would happen to the dog, but it was unclear what action was taken, the Daily News reported.
