SEPANG: There was nothing she could do but scream when she saw three dogs attacking her son in Puchong last year. 

Mushitah Saaid, 37, told a magistrate's court that she was in the kitchen when her nephews informed her that her son Muhammad Hazman Khan Sheikh Zaini was being attacked by three dogs. 

She said she ran out and saw that the dogs were all over her son. 

“I did not dare go near as the dogs were big and even tried to attack me," she said. 

“There was no one around. I screamed for help and it was then that an Indian man came out of his house and hit the dogs with a big stick.”  

The dogs then ran off. 

Mushitah was testifying in the trial of businessman Chong Foo Meng, accused of negligence in allowing his three dogs to attack Muhammad Hazman at Taman Putra Perdana in Puchong on March 18 last year. 

Chong, 43, was alleged to have failed to take adequate steps to safeguard his dogs from posing a reasonable threat to human life, thus causing serious injuries to Muhammad Hazman. 

If found guilty he could be jailed a maximum of six months or fined RM2,000 or both.  

She added that her son was warded at the Hospital Putrajaya for more than a week.  

Hearing before magistrate Shazrill Ghazali continues on Oct 31.
