UPDATE: The Mandan Police Department says the second pit bull involved in the dog attack that put two people in the hospital Sunday has been located and is in custody.

ORIGINAL STORY: Two people have been taken to the hospital after a pit bull attack on Sunday.

The Mandan Police Department says officers responded to a call of two dogs attacking an adult and a child around 7 p.m.

According to the release, the dogs escaped from their yard and attacked the two victims.

Lt. Pat Haug with the Mandan Police Department says one dog was found but the other one is still out on the loose.

Haug says they issued a Code Red notification to let neighbors around 2nd Street NW and 10 Ave NW in Mandan about the dog not being captured.

Both victims have significant injuries to their legs and feet but injuries are non-life threatening.

Police continue to look for the male pit bull with a docked tail and a blue collar.
