Police in Texas have released a video of a dog attack that left a 7-year-old boy with serious injuries.

The video shows the dog's owner trying to restrain the dog after it ran the boy down.

The owner is a neighbor and friend of the victim and says the incident was a "horrible accident."

Thomas Armendariz claims the leash on the dog broke.

Police say the dog's owner will receive citations for having an unregistered dog, an unprovoked attack, and no proof of rabies vaccination.

The dog was put on a 10-day rabies quarantine watch at an animal center.
