  • Reyna Gutierrez was cornered between two parked cars outside her Dallas home
  • Her son, 9, jumped on a car to escape as she fought the dog with his backpack
  • Neighbor ran in the help and was attacked and knocked down by the animal 

A pregnant woman was attacked by a vicious pit bull in front of her two young children after it suddenly charged at her while they walked through an apartment complex’s parking lot.

Horrifying video shows Reyna Gutierrez walking on Amanda Lane in Dallas at 3.48pm on Tuesday before the dog suddenly runs across the street.

Gutierrez, who was eight months pregnant, was cornered between two parked cars and the dog jumped and mauled her.

Her terrified daughter, six, screamed and fled and her son, nine, jumped on top of a car to avoid the dog as she tried to fight it off with her son’s backpack.

A neighbor ran over to help, and the dog turned on him, attacking him as he retreated and then fell on the road.

He managed to get the dog off him, and it ran away as Gutierrez and her children escaped to their house.

The terrifying attack was recorded on Gutierrez and her husband Erik Roja’ door camera that faces over their front yard to the street, and released by Dallas police.

Gutierrez suffered bite wounds to both her hands and forearms, and was taken to hospital for 24 hours to monitor her unborn child, police said.

The neighbor who stepped in had injuries to his stomach.

Video later shows the dog’s owner arrive, put and leash on the animal, and leave the street.

Gutierrez said she knew the owner lived in the area, but not their name or exactly where their house was.

‘I just want people to be responsible. How could you take your dog out without a leash knowing it’s aggressive?’ she told WFAA.

‘I couldn’t do anything, I tried to cover myself with my son’s backpack.’

She claimed the pit bull chased someone else several days earlier, but that victim managed to get away.

Police spent Wednesday knocking on doors in the neighborhood trying to find the dog’s owner. The attack is being investigated and no arrests have been made.
