On Friday, October 7th at approximately 11:09 a.m., deputies with the Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station were requested to the area of Vinton Street and Mesa Road, in Baldy Mesa where 80-year-old Soon Han was found unresponsive in the roadway. 

According to the VV Sheriff’s Department, investigators believe Han was out for a walk when she was attacked by two dogs from a nearby home. Han suffered major injuries during the attack and was pronounced deceased at the scene. The owner of the dogs was located and is cooperating with the investigation. San Bernardino County Animal Control also responded to the incident and took custody of the dogs, which were both of Dogo Argentino breed. The dogs will be held at Animal Control until the investigation is complete and a vicious dog hearing takes place.
