A 12-year-old girl from Ohio was saved by her family's dog when a man chased after her.

The girl was followed on Saturday by a man in a 1970's model Ford pick-up truck who then got out of the car to chase her, according to a police report obtained by WKBN.

She then ran up the driveway to her dad's house, where her family dog went on defense and knocked the pick-up driver to the ground, according to the police report. The report also said the dog "got him pretty good."

The man escaped in his vehicle and headed from Columbiana toward New Waterford, per the police report.
