Arrested for dangling teen over fence where dog was held

Teen bitten after men dangled him over fence where dog was held

A teenager was injured, badly enough to require treatment at a hospital, after three men grabbed him and dangled him over a chain-link fence into a yard where a dog was held. According to Newsday, the incident happened on Saturday evening in Hempstead, Long Island, New York – a 14-year-old boy was bitten multiple times on his leg after the dog inside of the fence attacked.

One person has been arrested for the cruel incident – according to ABC 7 news, 18-year-old Christian Siley is facing charges for assault and endangering the welfare of a child – he has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The authorities are still searching for the two other men who are believed to be involved in the incident – anyone with information about this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.

      This is horrible for the teen and the dog , I agree. I hope they charge the other two involved. I also hope the dog is not punished. I would think he would be frightened by someone flailing around in his yard. He took it as a threat and was trying to protect his family’s home.

    So horrible. I really hope the kid will be okay and that all three of the criminals who did this are caught and charged. I worry what will happen to the dog – hoping they don’t kill it over this, since it wasn’t the dog’s fault.

    DO NOT BLAME THE DOG!!!!! He is a victim as much as the injured teen – it is those human maggots that are at fault. The cops have the way and means to make that punk, Christian Siley talk so they can get the others who committed this crime.
