The San Francisco police are warning the public about a man wanted in a domestic violence, kidnapping and felony animal cruelty case alleging he slammed a four-month-old puppy to the ground; so hard the dog died just hours later. The suspect has been identified as Delos Pierre Gallon.
According to AbcNews, the disturbing incident occurred on Saturday night in a store on Turk Street where a couple had been engaged in a loud argument. By the time police arrived the suspect and female victim had disappeared, but witnesses stated the suspect had thrown canned food at the woman. Next he grabbed the victim’s four-month-old cocker spaniel from her arms and “forcefully slammed the puppy on the floor of the store.”
Officers located the victim and her puppy named “Prince” who died at San Francisco Animal Care and Control.
Gallon has a prior arrest for the possession of firearms violations and is considered dangerous. Anyone recognizing the suspect is urged to call 911 with his location and description. Anyone with information can contact sFPD at 415.575.4444 or Test a Tipe to TIP411 and begin the text with SFPD.
