    A man was hospitalized Monday evening following a pit bull attack in Revere, Massachusetts.

    Fire officials said a man who lives in a commercial space in an office building at 318 Squire Road was watching the dog for a friend when he invited another friend over to drink alcohol.

    Authorities said when the men fell asleep, the dog randomly attacked the guest, before running out a back door of the building.

    The men called 911 and police were able to locate the dog nearby. Animal control was called in to safely remove the dog.

    Fire officials said the man who was attacked was taken to Mass General Hospital to be treated for extensive arm injuries.
