Man Severely Mauled by Two Rottweiler Dogs

A 42-year-old Carson man was attacked on a Torrance street Sunday by two Rottweiler dogs who apparently escaped from a fenced area around an auto body shop, authorities said.

Kuosheng Huang suffered severe dog bites over his entire body as a horrified worker at a nearby business in the 19500 block of South Normandie Avenue tried to scare the dogs away by honking his car horn, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies said.

Rottweiler mauling--Based on information supplied by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, The Times on Monday identified the Lopiccolo & Son auto body shop as the owner of two Rottweiler dogs that seriously mauled a man in Torrance. The county Department of Animal Control said Wednesday that the dogs actually belonged to a firm called Mighty Enterprises.

The worker, Abron Martin, 30, tried to warn Huang when he saw him walking unknowingly in the direction of the dogs shortly before 10 a.m., but it was too late.

Huang managed to escape the dogs by climbing onto Martin’s hood. He suffered nerve damage in the attack and will require plastic surgery, deputies said. He was taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition.


The dogs, which were used as security at Lopiccolo and Son auto body shop, also attacked deputies who arrived at the scene. The deputies shot and killed the two animals.
