Police responding to a call about a dog bite in the Bayview district last weekend encountered something even worse: a human.

At 2:12 p.m. Sunday in the area of Underwood Avenue and Keith Street, a 55-year-old woman told cops, the most vicious dog in her neighborhood was actually her son’s friend, Terrell Wilson, 42, of San Francisco.

According to the woman, Wilson had his pit bull attack her after she rejected his sexual advances.

The incident unfolded when the woman was walking through the area and passed Wilson, who was walking his pit bull and carrying an unopened can of beer, according to police.

“When the suspect saw the victim, he walked up to her and grabbed her chest,” police said.

After the woman shoved Wilson away, he allegedly commanded his dog to attack her.

“The dog did as he was told and latched onto the victim’s arm,” police said.

Then the shocking assault reportedly only became more vicious.

While the woman struggled with the dog, police said, the suspect “clobbered her on the head with the unopened beer can, knocking her to the ground, where he proceeded to kick her.”

Eventually, Wilson managed to get his pit bull to stop mauling the victim, police said. The woman fled and called police.

Following a search of the area, cops found Wilson and his dog at Third Street and Underwood Avenue. The pooch was seized by Animal Care and Control, police said, and Wilson was booked at the Bayview Police Station on multiple aggravated assault charges.

The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where she was treated for injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Today, Wilson is scheduled to be arraigned on three felonies, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said. He also is charged with misdemeanor sexual battery.
