— Police have announced charges in a dog attack that happened at a Wake County school bus stop on Tuesday.

Terell Black, of Wake Forest, faces several charges, including violation of a county ordinance.

The children's bus driver, Sharon Jeffreys, was able to scare the dog away with a broom.

The children sustained minor injuries and were released from the hospital on Tuesday.

The dog is in the Wake County Animal Control's custody.
