A teen in North Carolina is behind bars – arrested after he allegedly choked his girlfriend and decapitated a puppy. According to multiple sources, 18-year-old Antonio Hollywood Campbell of Fayetteville, was taken into custody on Monday after his girlfriend, Jordon Stevens, alerted the authorities to a violent incident which took place earlier this month.
According to Stevens, Campbell became violent while accusing her of talking to “other men.” The teen allegedly threw his girlfriend onto a bed and choked her to the point that she could no longer breath and could not see. Stevens also told the police that Campbell tortured a puppy before cutting off the pup’s head.
In a release, the Cumberland County Sheriff detailed the grim details of the cruel incident:
“Approximately three weeks ago she was at Campbell’s residence when he became upset and stated, “Well if you ain’t gonna be with me, then I am going to kill the dog.” He tied a leash around the neck of the puppy and began to spin the dog around in the air by the leash. He then tied the leash to the back of a vehicle and drove several feet dragging the puppy behind. Campbell finally placed the puppy between two cinder blocks so it cannot move. Campbell took a hatchet and decapitated the puppy.”
Detectives who went to Campbell’s residence found the puppy’s remains, along with a hatchet and a cinder block. They also found a sawed off shotgun. Campbell is facing a slew of charges, including: Domestic Violence Felony Strangulation for the assault on Stevens, Animal Cruelty and Possession of a Weapon of Mass Destruction.
During the afternoon session of first appearances a judge set Campbell’s bond at $137,500 secured.
