WARRENVILLE, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - A 40-year-old woman was rushed to a hospital after being attacked by a group of dogs Wednesday morning in Warrenville.

Details are limited but police scanner traffic reported at 10:32 a.m. a woman was attack by six or seven dogs at 199 Baker St.

Capt. Eric Abdullah confirms the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene along with emergency medical crews.
