A 4-year-old boy was mauled to death by a family dog as he and his two brothers played in a bedroom of their apartment in Brooklyn, the authorities said on Saturday.
The boy, Jayelin Graham, suffered ‘multiple bite wounds’ on his head, his neck and other parts of his body, said a law enforcement official.
The attack occurred about 9:20 p.m. Friday in the family’s first-floor apartment, at 2169 Pacific Street, in Brownsville – the police said. The Brooklyn district attorney’s office and the city’s health department were investigating.
Detectives and a spokesman for Animal Care and Control of New York City could not say what caused the dog, a male Cane Corso who is 7 or 8 years old, to attack.
The boy’s mother (Saquina Jubeark) told investigators the attack occurred after she and her children had returned home from a shopping trip. Jayelin and two of his brothers (ages 2 and 5) had gone into a bedroom.
Ms. Jubeark, who had her 10-month-old daughter in her arms, realized she had left keys in a stroller in the hallway and went to get them. At some point, the law enforcement official said, she noticed it was very quiet and ‘opened the bedroom door and noticed the dog standing over Jayelin and biting him.’
The other children were hiding by the bed.

The alleged owner of the large dog that police say savagely mauled a four-year old boy to death had trained his animals to be aggressive and called them “monster dogs” – reports the New York Post.
A neighbour to the Brooklyn family, Robin Parkinson (56) told the paper Damian “Dread” Jones would “hang stuff on trees or the school yard fence – stuffed animals or footballs – just so his dogs could rip the stuff up.
“It was an accident waiting to happen” – she said.
“[Mr Jones] could clear the block with them dogs” – Ms Parkinson said. “He used to punch them in the heads, kick them in the ribs, brutal”.
Neighbours said Mr Jones was rarely at the house where his wife, Saquina “Honey” Jubeark (24) and three sons lived. Two other boys, ages five and two, were unharmed by the dog attack.
Police say the mother may face criminal charges after her son Jayelin Graham was mauled to death Friday night.
Jayelin was pronounced dead on arrival at Brookdale University Hospital in Brooklyn after a horrific attack by his family’s Cane Corso-mastiff mix – police said.
