Tewksbury Police and EMS were called to 11 Valewood Circle tonight about 6:15 p.m., after someone called 911 and reported that an 11-year-old girl was “bleeding profusely” after being bitten in the face by a dog.
Dispatchers said in radio broadcasts that the girl was bit in the face by her own family’s dog, but did not identify the breed of the dog, or provide further details.
Tewksbury Police, fire, and an out-of-town ambulance from Andover are at the scene now.
That’s all I’ve got for now. Crews are still on scene. I’ll update this later if I can get more info.
