A 12-year-old Fremont girl is recovering from a pit bull attack over the weekend.

It happened Sunday in Centerville Park. Police say a 6-month-old pit bull bit the girl on the arm after running away from its owner.

The girl suffered a puncture wound and several scratches.

The owner drove away with the dog after apologizing, but witnesses gave his license plate number to police who tracked him down. The pit bull is now under quarantine.
