Martin Frey, 54, of 84 Lincoln Road, is awaiting arraignment Monday at First District Court in Central Islip after being charged with one count of animal cruelty and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
According to police, at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sixth Precinct patrol officers received a 911 call from a woman at 82 Lincoln Road reporting that her neighbor had shot her dog.
When police officers Ettore Naclerio and Michael Cafarella arrived to the home, they noticed that the German Shepard had a BB gun pellet lodged in his nose and the dog was bleeding. Police said the injuries were non-life-threatening.
Frey was arrested at the scene and police said he was found to be in possession of a gravity knife when he was arrested, spurring the weapons possession charge.
He was held overnight in police custody and held for morning arraignments, police said.
