A second person has been arrested in relation to an incident in Co Wexford in which a nine-year-old boy was viciously attacked by a dog.
Gardaí confirmed that a woman, aged in her 30s, was arrested this morning.
A man in his 20s was arrested in relation to the same incident last week.
Alejandro Mizsan, aged nine, suffered serious face and leg injuries when he was attacked by an unmuzzled pitbull in Enniscorthy on November 27th.
