CCTV footage shows the dogs charging at residents as they stood outside their properties in Quinns Rocks, in the north Perth, around 10:30 a.m.

“I was in a state of panic, I feared for my life,” Phillip Smith, who suffered several bloody wounds to his lower leg, told 7NEWS.

The two animals chased the three men and one woman back to their home.

Smith and his neighbor Ian Stewart were attacked by the animals not once, but twice.

“They just attacked him full on,” Smith said of his neighbor.

“We yelled at the dogs and we looked for something to grab to hit the dogs with, but there was nothing there.”

Video shows a trail of blood left by one of the victims as they ran into their house for protection.

Smith told 7NEWS he believes the dogs “would have gotten me” if it wasn’t for the Windex.

Council rangers eventually caught both dogs and are now trying to locate any owners.

It has not yet been decided whether the dogs will be euthanized.

“I don’t like to see any dogs put down, except for that pit bull that just went wild on me,” Smith said.

The City of Wanneroo is currently holding the dogs in a municipal facility while it investigates the incident.
