A 13-year-old boy was hospitalized after one or more dogs attacked him Wednesday on Avenue B in Schenectady, police said.

Police received a call around 3 p.m. for a report of a dog attack. The boy had sustained minor injuries and was transported to Ellis Hospital, said Sgt. Matthew Dearing.

He couldn’t say Wednesday night whether there was more than one dog involved or what kind of dogs were involved.

The city’s animal control officer is investigating the incident. No charges have been filed against the dog’s owner yet, Dearing said.
