A neighbor's two pit bulls attacked a man inside his apartment in North Mission Viejo Thursday morning near the corner of Santa Margarita and Marguerite.
Police were called at 9 a.m. when a man was reportedly bitten in the back of the leg. His wife told police a "chunk of meat was taken out of her husband's leg."
She said the dogs' owners were hiding the animals inside their apartment.
The police dispatcher said it sounded like the neighbors had been fighting.
The call came from the 21600 block of Marguerite Parkway.
