UPDATE 04/12/2013 : Christopher Caceres, 22, is charged with felony animal cruelty, burglary and misdemeanor sexual assault of an animal. He faces up to nine years in prison if convicted of all charges, according to prosecutors. Caceres is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Lisa Caceres, mother of the accused man, Christopher Alexander Caceres, stated:
Our prayers are with our son,”
My husband and I had no idea. We already spoke to the people and told them the same thing. He needs help, and we are sorry about what happened.”
On Nov. 10, after viewing surveillance footage of the sexual assault, the dog’s owner went to the police.
The victimized dog’s owner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, installed security cameras on his property because he feared that his house was being targeted by a prowler; the man had heard his dog “shriek,” during the night, on two separate occasions.
Prior to viewing the recorded video, which showed a two-plus hour long encounter, the man had no idea that his dog was being forced to engage in sexual activity with Caceres.
Caceres’ mother has elected not to watch the video which implicates her son.
She has stated:
We are very upset about it just like everybody else,
At this time, we are doing the best we can. Eventually things will calm down and be OK again. We are hoping for the best for everybody involved.”
Prior story on this disturbing case here.
A 22-year-old San Pedro, Calif., man is facing multiple charges after a neighbor’s surveillance cameras caught him engaging in sordid, sexual activity with a dog, reported Tuesday’s Press-Telegram.
Christopher Alexander Caceres is accused of sexually assaulting an 80-pound Akita; according to footage captured by the dog owner’s surveillance camera, the attack went on for two agonizing hours.
The dog’s owner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, told The Press-Telegram:
It was unimaginable to me,
For it to go on that long was heart-wrenching.”
It’s inhumane. I don’t even know what to say about it,”
He is apparently just a real sicko.”
The dog’s owner had installed security cameras because he feared that his house was being targeted by a prowler. The dog’s owner had heard his dog “shriek” during the night, and he has also found fur from the dog scattered in his yard.
After viewing the security camera footage, the man witnessed the suspect feeding something to his dog, believed to be a drug of some sort, and then, after approximately 15 minutes, the lengthy sexual attack began.
The police were notified on Nov. 10, after the dog’s owner viewed the surveillance footage.
Caceres, who is reported to be a grandson of one of the dog owner’s neighbors, pleaded not guilty to charges, including burglary and bestiality; he has been ordered to come back to court on Nov. 25.
The victimized dog has been seen, and treated, by a veterinarian.
