    Trevino said he ran outside to help her.

    "Dogs were on her legs, one was on her neck. It looked like they were eating her," said Trevino.

    Police said the four dogs in the attack were pit bulls.

    Another man in the neighborhood also rushed over to help the woman during the attack.

    Trevino and the man were able to get the dogs off her and into the backyard.

    Emergency crews quickly arrived.

    "If they didn't get there in time she would have probably died, because they wouldn't have stopped,” said Trevino.

    Officers were able to corner the dogs until Animal Control arrived to take them.

    Police said the woman suffered numerous dog bites. An update on her condition is not available at this time.

    Keithan Manus is the owner of the dogs.

    “I don’t know the whole scenario of what happened. I was asleep,” said Manus.

    Manus said he closed his gate before he went to bed, but it somehow came unlatched and let the dogs out.
