The 10-year-old girl was walking her dog when an unknown man grabbed her arm Friday afternoon in Woodbridge, Prince William County police said in a statement on Facebook.

Prince William County police spokesman Sgt. Jonathan Perok says the dog bit the man, causing him to release the girl and run away. The girl was not injured.
