Animal control officers are combing an east San Jose neighborhood in search of two pit bulls that viciously attacked a woman on the street. Police say the 41-year-old victim was getting into her car Monday night when two pit bulls approached her and began mauling her.
Police say a neighbor heard the woman's screams and began throwing rocks at the dogs, who then ran away.
The victim suffered serious bite wounds to her arms and lower back, and is recovering at home.
The dogs are described as full-bred, dark gray pit bulls with clipped ears and light gray spots. Authorities say they don't know who their owner is.

Pit bulls that attacked San Jose woman still not found
San Jose animal control officers have not been able to find the two pit bulls who viciously attacked a San Jose woman as she was about to get into a car, officials said this afternoon.
Animal control Sgt. Jay Terrado said the neighborhood was searched for about four hours.
"So far we haven't been able to find anything," he said.
Police said a 41-year-old woman was about to get into her car in the 3000 block of Whitesand Drive near Aborn Road on Monday night when two dark gray pit bulls attacked her. A neighbor came to her aid.
Juan Valencia told KTVU that he used a loose brick and rocks to hit the dogs, who then took off. The woman sustained injuries to an arm and hip.
Terrado said at one point the woman was on the ground and defenseless.
"That guy stepped in and saved her," Terrado said of Valencia.
The dogs are described as full bred pit bulls with clipped ears and light gray spots.
Anyone with information on the dogs should call San Jose Animal Care and Services at 408-578-7297 before 9 p.m.
