Two people were taken to a hospital after they were bitten by a pit bull Tuesday night in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

The dog came out of a yard in the 3900 block of West Fillmore a few minutes after 8 p.m. and attacked two people, police said.

A man, whose age was not immediately available, was bitten in the left hand and a 15-year-old girl suffered a bite to the left forearm, police said.

Both were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition.

The owner ran away with the dog, and was not in custody as of Wednesday morning, police said.
