Authorities have taken custody of a young pit bull that chased down and attacked a 10-year-old boy in Lincoln.

Police say the boy's wounds took 30 stitches to close.

Lincoln Police Capt. David Beggs says the boy was riding his bike in an alley on Wednesday afternoon. Nearby, 51-year-old Lisa Burton was walking her 10-month-old pit bull. It was on a leash.

Beggs says the dog got away from Burton and chased the boy. It knocked him off his bicycle and bit his face, head and arms.

The boy's mom took him to a Lincoln hospital for treatment.
