New York City cops are looking for a man seen in a surveillance video severelybeating a dog inside a Harlem elevator. The incident took place inside the Wagner Houses at 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 26th.

According to Gothamist, the suspect “whose hair was in corn rows, was wearing a red T-shirt and baseball cap.”

Anyone with any information regarding the beating is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS. All Crime Stoppers calls are kept confidential.

Sadly, this story is quite familiar. Another Wagner Houses surveillance video last year caught dog owner Irving Sanchez mercilessly kicking his own pet pooch inside an elevator. Sanchez was charged with aggravated animal cruelty. (see below) And in 2010, three other such elevator dog beatings were caught on camera inside the Grant Houses, also in Harlem. (see below)

Irving Sanchez Caught On Tape Abusing Pit Bull Puppy

In the video, a man police say is Sanchez is seen walking into the elevator with a small pit bull puppy named Max. Once inside the elevator, the man is seen dragging the dog from side to side of the elevator by its leash, hurling it into the elevator walls. Then the man leans in and hits the dog repeatedly with the handle of the leash, wielding the strap like a club. Finally the man starts stepping on the dog and appears to kick him. Sanchez was arrested the next day. He is charged with aggravated cruelty to animals. Max was taken to an animal shelter.

May 12, 2010 Caught on Tape: Man Pleads Guilty to Beating Lap Dog in Elevator

 

If animal cruelty turns your stomach, you should not watch this video.

A man has admitted to viciously kicking his girlfriend’s lap dog in an attack police witnessed on security cameras installed in a Manhattan apartment building elevator.

Chris Grant has been sentenced to three months in jail after pleading guilty to an animal cruelty charge. He’s 21. “Three months in jail…ridiculous, should have been 3 years or more…if he is so flippant about abusing the dog in an elevator, what does he do behind closed doors?…FxxxxxG Knob Head. He will be out now, probably abusing some other innocent dog, which is just heartbreaking & gut wrenching, thinking about what he could be doing! Will he be caught NO. However if the Animal Abuse Registry had been operating, at least officers could keep a check on him…I loved the News girls reaction, I too would like to kick his nads in!!

Police officers monitoring surveillance cameras in the Harlem building as part of a search for a murder suspect arrested Grant when they saw him on tape abusing the black-and-white Chihuahua and Pomeranian mix, named Chuvi-Duvi. 

The cameras captured Grant patting his knees as if to invite the 12-pound dog to be petted, then kicking it away. His lawyer didn’t immediately return a call Wednesday. Tests showed Chuvi-Duvi escaped serious injury. The plea was entered Tuesday.“On the outside perhaps, but that beating & others the dog probably received, could have caused serious Psychological  implications! Abuse, stays with the victim, for life, no matter what kind or to whom, it is never forgotten, trust me!”

Police later found the man accused of stabbing nine-year old Anthony Maldonado, the victim of one of the city’s first homicides of 2010.

The two crimes were not connected, but Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said solving them involved the same basic tools: a camera, and a cop paying attention.

In condemning the alleged dog-kicker at the time, Kelly called Grant “an abusive individual who repeatedly and brutally beat a small defenseless dog.”

See for yourself, but if you’re an animal lover, be advised: it’s tough to watch.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

A New York City woman has been charged after police say she was caught on video kicking and jerking her Pomeranian on an elevator in the same housing project where surveillance cameras captured a dog being beaten earlier this month.

Tiara Davis was charged with torturing and injuring an animal Monday. The incident was recorded by video cameras in the elevators of the Grant Houses Sunday morning. Police released the videos Tuesday.

The video shows Sparky, her 4-year-old Pomeranian, being beaten and jerked by its leash until unconscious. Davis, 31, said she lost her temper when the dog relieved himself before getting outside. “I kept telling him, ‘Sparky! Wait! Wait!’ ” Davis, a vocational counselor for ex-offenders, told the New York Daily News. “I became a little frustrated,” she added. “It was never my intention to hurt him.” Sparky is recovering at the ASPCA hospital
