Authorities say a 12-year-old is recovering after he was attacked by a dog while trick-or-treating in northern New Jersey.

The attack happened at a house on Robinson Road in Closter Thursday.

Police Chief Dennis Kane tells The Record newspaper the black Labrador mix bit the child's face. Kane says the boy sustained deep lacerations.

The dog's vaccinations were current and the animal was left with its owners pending further investigation.
