Santa Barbara County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man for possession of dogs that seriously injured a Goleta resident Saturday morning.

Deputies responded to a report of someone who was attacked by a dog on San Milano Dr. around 11:30 a.m.

Fire and medics treated the patient who had serious injuries. The identity and the condition of the victim are not available for release.

Two dogs had broken through a fence and attacked the victim, according to officials. A resident where the dogs live secured them before authorities arrived on scene.

According to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office, neighbors in the area pointed out the address where the dogs live and told deputies that there were other aggressive encounters with the dogs.

Deputies then contacted 24-year-old Armando Coronado at his residence with the two dogs.

Coronado was arrested for possession of a mischievous animal that causes serious bodily injury. He's booked at the Santa Barbara County Jail with a bail of $20,000.

County Animal Control responded and took possession of the dogs.

City of Goleta officials were informed of this incident and indicated that they plan follow-up with County Animal Control, who provide contract service to the City of Goleta
