Puppies Kidnapped at Gunpoint

Five Yorkshire terriers, including four puppies offered for sale, were dognapped at gunpoint from a Koreatown home.

The home-invasion robbery was captured on video by the family’s home security system.

Detectives released the tapein hopes of apprehending the two robbers, who got away with puppies valued at $2,500 each and the family’s grown Yorkie, Tang-ja, said Lt. Paul Vernon of the Los Angeles Police Department.

“The family had advertised the Yorkshire terriers in a newspaper,” Vernon said. “It appears the suspects answered the ad, knowing the value of the puppies.”

Shortly before 10 p.m. Feb. 23, the two men came to the family’s home on Manhattan Place. When a woman opened the door, one of the men pointed a handgun at her and the robbers forced their way into the home.

Vernon said that once inside, the men ordered the family to lie on the floor while one robber grabbed the dogs.

“The video shows them walking up, forcing their way into the home, forcing the family onto the floor and then chasing the dogs to round them up,” Vernon said.

He said the robbers placed all five dogs in a black bag and then left in a silver car. No one was injured in the robbery, Vernon said, but the family is particularly upset about the loss of Tang-ja, who had been their pet for three years.

“This robbery is a good lesson to residents that soliciting buyers to one’s home can be a risky practice,” Vernon said.

Man Takes Knife to Racist German Shepherd

YONKERS — A prejudiced pooch that reportedly disliked minorities was slashed last night by a black man who had grown tired of the dog’s incessant barking at him, police said.

The German Shepherd lost an eye, and the alleged slasher — who worked for an oil delivery business where the dog stood guard — was arrested on a felony aggravated cruelty charge.

Andrew Owens, 58, was arraigned this morning in City Court after spending the night in jail.

“The dog reacts to black people, Hispanics, anyone who is not white,” owner Paul Tocco said. “She always barked at him. He (Owens) was well aware the dog didn’t like him, and he knew to stay away from her.”

“egged on” the barking dog and charged at her, Detective Ken Ross III said. He allegedly then pulled out a nine-inch folding knife.

“He taunted her with his arm, raised his arm with a knife and slashed the dog across the face,” he said. “He cut the dog over the right eye, all the way down to the eye socket bone.”
