A Warren child was taken to the hospital after being bit by a dog Monday evening.

According to the police report, the 13-year-old was walking down the sidewalk with her mother when the dog rushed out of a yard on the 1600 block of Lexington Avenue NW.

Police say the juvenile had bite marks on her left thigh and left hand.

The victim's mother told police that she would be taking her to the hospital for treatment.

Officers spoke with the dog's owner, who said that he let the dog outside, lost the leash, and the dog ran out of his yard.

Police say the dog warden would follow up with the owner.
