Darlene White, 45, saw the attack from her home  two doors down. The screams awakened her from a nap at about 2 p.m.

White looked out her window and saw Williams on the ground in front of her neighbor’s home. She recognized Williams as the grandmother of the dog’s owner.

Several neighbors rushed to Williams and to fend off the dog. It’s unclear whether anyone else was injured.
