US police had to be called in to subdue a 10-kilogram house cat that trapped its owners inside their bedroom after attacking their baby.

The baby was not injured in the incident on Sunday (local time).

Pete Simpson, a Portland Police Bureau spokesman, said officers responded to an emergency call from a couple who had locked themselves in their bedroom with the baby and their dog after the cat attacked the child.

Simpson said the operator could hear the cat screeching in the background as the couple awaited help.

Officers used a dog snare to capture the cat and placed it in a crate.

Simpson said the owners told the dispatcher the cat has a history of violence. He said the cat remained with its owners.
