(Daily Mail) – A woman who was a ‘known prostitute’ has lost her arm and leg in a pit bull attack after a man squatting in a home left empty by a narcotics raid left her there.
Ian Summers, 30, brought Robin Johnson, age unknown, to the abandoned Orange County, Florida house. When she entered, the house’s pit bull, Feisty, began to attack her, police reports show.
Summers told investigators that he was ‘scared to death’ of the dog, who was now biting Johnson’s arm and legs, so he reportedly closed the door and left.
According to the arrest report, Johnson was in a coma and had to have her left arm amputated below the elbow, and her left leg below the knee.
Summers originally claimed that he owned the house, but the primary resident later told the Orlando Sentinel that he had left after a narcotics raid last November.
Summers also said that he was the one who ran to a nearby fire station to get help, but witnesses told police that it was in fact another man who rushed to alert authorities about Johnson’s attack.
He allegedly told investigators that when Johnson entered the house, Feisty began attacking her, biting her arms and legs.
He said he ‘did not want to be anywhere near that dog’ and told investigators that he ‘left and closed the door,’ the paper said.
The Sentinel reported that Summers took Johnson to the house intending to engage in sexual acts.
Johnson, who was interviewed at the hospital following the pit bull attack, said she had gone with Summers to the house to smoke crack cocaine.
According to reports, Feisty has a violent past, and was linked to at least three attacks, one in which a two-year-old boy lost a ‘large portion’ of skin under his arm.
Another injured a 47-year-old man at a budget hotel in 2010, the Sentinel reports.
Summers faces the second-degree felony charge of burglary of an occupied dwelling, as well as culpable negligence, which is a misdemeanour.
He remains in custody at the Orange County jail.
