Teen attacked by stray dogs after he stole a woman’s purse

They say “what goes around comes around,” so when a teenager from Queens stole a woman’s purse and fled to a nearby park, a pair of stray dogs happened to see him and attacked. According to the New York Post, the delinquent 15-year-old followed a woman who got off an MTA bus in Springfield Gardens. When she sat down on a nearby bench and placed her purse by her side, the teen snatched it and ran off.

And here’s the “karma” part. As the kid was escaping, two stray dogs – one German shepherd and a pit bull type breed had been in the park and chased the teen subduing him easily. The dogs then began to bite him.

“Talk about karma biting him in the ass – literally, joked a police source to the NY Post.

Officers from the New York Police Department’s Emergency Service Unit were able to stop the dogs from attacking the kid using tranquilizer darts. The teen was transported to Long Island Jewish Medical Center where he has been treated for serious bite injuries. Burglary charges against him are pending.

The dogs have been turned over to the ASPCA facility in Manhattan. No information as to the future of the dogs has been announced. We can only hope their lives are saved and their owners are located.

    Good dogs! The thief got exactly what he deserved, and I’m glad the police didn’t shoot and kill the dogs. Hoping they survive and find loving homes.

    J’espère que les chiens ne risquent rien, ils ont protégé la femme qu’ils ne connaissaient pas, un humain n’aurait peut être pas fait la même chose.
