HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) - Police in South Florida say a man has been arrested after he was caught on video stabbing a dog.
The Miami Herald reports (http://hrld.us/16Q4utS ) surveillance footage shows Jose Cespedes walking along a sidewalk in Hialeah. As Cespedes walked by a chain linked fence, a dog named Oscar jumped against the fence and barked at him.
According to an arrest report, Cespedes pulled a knife out of his waistband and stabbed the dog near its shoulder.
The dog's owner witnessed the stabbing and went out to confront Cespedes, but he ran away.
The dog underwent surgery and needed stitches.
Cespedes was arrested Friday and charged with cruelty to an animal with the intent to injure or kill and carrying a concealed deadly weapon. He is being held on $26,000 bond.
