A neighbor, Diana Jones, told the Sun Herald she filed the complaint on which the warrant was based after one of the dogs, a large male pit bull named Cash, and a second pit bull not involved in Wednesday's attack, got into her yard.
In a 911 call obtained by NBC Charlotte, a woman said two pit bulls attacked her and her cat along Fite Road near Belmont Abbey College.
Lucy Glenn lives on the same street where the attack happened, and she said the same two dogs have caused problems for months.
Last December, a Virginia woman who posted numerous photos of her two pit bulls online was found dead by police while her dogs chewed on her rib cage. She collected people's cans to donate money to her church, so she roamed the neighborhood nearly every day.
Her family has identified her as Georgia Ruth Morgan, known around the neighborhood as "the can lady".
Jones and others say the woman killed was frequently seen in the neighborhood collecting cans for recycling.
That dog, was Jones', the same next door neighbor who saw the aftermath of Wednesday's attack, quoted above. Police say the owner left the scene without providing any identification or any information regarding the dogs' vaccination records.
She told us, Craft's pit bulls have always been aggressive.
Jones also says this isn't the first time there have been issues with these dogs.
"They would get through here [the fence], and they was crawling under the fence".
"That was a very sweet lady, ' Jones said".
As of now, no charges have been filed.
