Four people in Western Australia have escaped a brutal dog attack, thanks to a bottle of window cleaner.

The four were attacked by two dogs in Quinns Rocks, WA on Wednesday morning.

Two of the people needed stitches after the attack and are still in hospital.

At around 10.30am on Wednesday morning, CCTV footage captured the two dogs running towards residents as they stood outside their homes in north Perth.

Phillip Smith suffered multiple leg injuries and told 7 NEWS he feared for his life.

The dogs chased three men and a woman into their homes, but they continued to target Mr Smith and his neighbour, Ian Stewart.

Mr Smith told 7 NEWS the dogs attacked Mr Stewart ‘head-on’.

“We were yelling at the dogs and looking for something to grab onto to hit the dogs on, but there was nothing there,” Mr Smith told 7 NEWS.

Footage also shows a trail of blood inside one of the houses as a victim ran inside to get away from the dogs.

Mr Stewart, along with another neighbour, underwent surgery at Joondalup Health Campus.

He has since been released.

The dogs were eventually captured by council wardens, who are currently trying to locate the owners.

The City of Wanneroo currently has the dogs in a holding facility while the incident is investigated.
