WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) -- It was chaos caught on camera as a pair of dogs attacked three children and mauled a man Friday night. Four days later, people in the Trinidad neighborhood are frightened and furious that the dogs whereabouts are still unknown.
Several people along the 1200 block of Queen Street NE told 9 News Now that they know where the dogs live and who the owners are. There's even bloody paw prints in the entryway to an apartment building. But, so far, investigators have made no arrests, they've filed no charges, and they have no idea where the dogs are.
"We don't have any indication that those dogs are inside the building at this time. The people that we spoke to inside the building - which is not every resident because not every resident has opened the door for us - but we don't have reason to believe that the people that we spoke to are the owner of the dogs," said Molly Lunaris with the D.C. Department of Health, the agency that oversees D.C. Animal Control.
The ongoing investigation is being conducted by the Metropolitan Police Department and the D.C. Department of Health. D.C. Animal Control is patrolling the neighborhood twice a day and issued an order for the dogs to be impounded. But many neighbors say it's not enough.
"I honestly feel like the police aren't doing their job," said Juakita Kinney, who's child was almost bitten by the two dogs. "They're not doing anything, they're not telling us anything. It's like they don't care about us or our children."
"The dogs should be euthanized and the owner should be arrested," said another neighbor. "When he saw what was happening, he just went inside and shut the door. The only reason he came back out is because the dogs were coming back down the street and he wanted to let them back in."
