COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) The owner of a pit bull has been arrested after her dog attacked a toddler in Commerce City.

The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/1nzppgN ) that 51-year-old Sue Tacket has been charged with unlawful ownership of a dangerous dog.

The attack happened Sunday evening in a grocery store parking lot.

A 19-month-old child was bitten by the 90-pound dog.

The boy suffered injuries to his face and neck, but police say he is expected to survive the attack. The dog was tethered to a pole and the child approached to pet the animal when it attacked.

Tacket is being held at the Adams County Jail.
