Two individuals are wanted by police for assaulting a lady and stealing her dog at a 7-Eleven in North Hollywood.
In a disturbing video, a man and a woman are shown assaulting the victim inside the store, knocking her to the ground, and stealing Drake, an 11-year-old pit bull/Rhodesian ridgeback mix.
North Hollywood Dog Stolen in Overnight Incident Sparks Desperate Search
On September 26, at 12:46 in the morning, the incident was reported at the business on the 11100 block of Burbank Boulevard.
According to Kris Kelly of the charity organisation the Kris Kelly Foundation, which fights to protect animals from violence. Drake’s breed is a preferred choice for criminals looking for canines to use as bait.
She explained that because they have flat coats, people search for dogs like this. They require them to serve as bait rather than as warriors.
Drake’s owner is in a desperate attempt to recover him, and police are relying on the public to help them find the thieves.
Taking my dog out at night makes me so nervous, said Mahrael Boutros, a resident of North Hollywood. He is my world, so I don’t know what I would do to myself if someone did that.
