ECTOR COUNTY -- A man and woman are now behind bars after a dog attack in 2017 sent a child to the hospital.

Lisa Hathaway Wilk, 43, and David Heileson, 46, have been arrested and charged for Attack by Dog Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury, a 3rd Degree Felony.

The charges come from an attack on April 19, 2017. 9-year-old Dylan Ybarra was getting off of a school bus when he was attacked by pit bulls.

Dylan was then taken to a hospital in Lubbock in critical condition for treatment of his injuries.

Two pit bulls were put down and tested for rabies. The results of the tests were both negative.

The Ector County Sheriff's Office says that both Wilk and Heileson were arrested outside of the county. No mugshots are available at this time.
