An Alton man is suing his neighbor and her friend, claiming he was attacked by a pit bull while on a walk.

Antonio M. Brown Sr. filed the lawsuit against Megan Page and Ginger Stodgsdill Sept. 30 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Brown says he was walking down his street near his neighbor's house when he was allegedly attacked by the dog. Brown says the dog bit him, puncturing his right leg and injuring his ribs. Page lives in the house where the alleged attack happened. Stodgsdill owns the dog.

Brown seeks an unspecified amount of money for injuries, medical bills and court costs.

Attorney Bob L. Perica of Wood River is representing him.
