Father and son charged in pit bull attack

From Mercury News

Prosecutors have charged a Whittier father and son after they allegedly attacked a man and unleashed the family pit bull on him. The Los Angeles County district attorney's office said Tuesday that 51-year-old Richard Rudy Aragon and his 17-year-old son face assault with a deadly weapon and other charges in the case.
Prosecutors say the teenage boy tried to steal a man's wallet outside a Whittier apartment building. When the man resisted, the pair started fighting, at which point Aragon came to his son's aid and released the pit bull.
The dog bit both ear tips off the victim and the father and son allegedly kicked the man while he was being mauled.
The son's name was not released.
Aragon was being held in lieu of $130,000 bond.
