Brian Freeman appears in Manhattan Criminal Court on Sept. 11, 2012. He’s charged with kicking a pit bull in the elevator of the Wagner Houses on August 26. Police surveillance video showed the attack, but Freeman’s lawyer claims that the attacker’s identity is not clear.

A Bronx man accused of viciously kicking a pit-bull in a Harlem elevator was held Tuesday in lieu of $3,500 bond.

Brian Freeman, 28, was caught on surveillance tape at the Wagner Houses on E. 120th St. on Aug. 26, leading the cowering pooch into the lift, then repeatedly kicking and punching the poor pup, prosecutors said.

Freeman’s father-in-law took the dog — a tan-and-white pitt-bull mix named Hazel — to an area animal shelter for treatment after the elevator beat-down, prosecutors said.

A rep for New York City Animal Care and Control said Hazel was doing “okay” Tuesday, but offered no additional details about her health.

Freeman, who was arrested yesterday on unrelated marijuana possession charges, was charged with one count of torturing an animal.

The video shows the “dog cower on the elevator floor and move around as if said dog was experiencing substantial pain,” according to the complaint.

Freeman’s lawyer said it’s impossible to determine who the attacker is based solely on the video. — Janon Fisher
