KENNEWICK, Wash. -- A woman is recovering from dog bite wounds she received in a pit bull attack Sunday at a home in Kennewick.

Police say Judy Phillips suffered severe bites on her arm and leg.

The Tri-City Herald reports medics found her on the driveway of the house, and the pit bull was inside where another woman had locked herself and a young child in a bedroom. Police helped them escape out a window.

Benton County Animal Control captured the dog and is holding it in quarantine.

Phillips was reported in satisfactory condition by Sunday afternoon at Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland.
