A four-year-old girl was taken to hospital in Stockholm after she was attacked on Thursday afternoon by two dogs.

The incident took place outside the Maria Magdalena Church on the Södermalm island at 4pm. The girl was able to return home after her mother took her to hospital for treatment.

With the aid of a witness police were able to identify a 46-year-old woman as the owner of the two dogs, reported by newspaper Aftonbladet to be pit bull terriers. The woman was questioned and a report was filed for causing bodily harm and a breach of laws regarding domestic pets.
