NORWALK — A 35-year-old Norwalk man is facing animal cruelty charges for allegedly stabbing his girlfriend’s pit bull with a knife.

Vamond Elmore, of 5 Hanford Place, was charged with animal cruelty, third-degree assault and disorderly conduct after police say he stabbed the dog because it would not stop barking.

 Officers responding to a domestic dispute at 5 Hanford Place on Sunday night observed a 1-inch gash above the animal’s left hind leg. The injury was not considered life-threatening, police said.

Police say the incident occurred after Elmore’s father came home to find a large group of people in his living room watching the Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto pay-per-view championship boxing match.

The elder Elmore began to argue with his son over the unwelcomed gathering when the dog started to bark, police said.

Police say Elmore then stabbed his girlfriend’s dog in a fit of rage.

Officers responded to the house and interviewed Elmore, who claimed that he stabbed the dog in self-defense after the animal attacked him.
