A woman caught on video, hurling a leashed dog at another woman in Halifax, has been identified and is being charged. The woman, identified as 27-year-old Clarissa Angela Crawley of Dartmouth.
Crawley was arrested on Wednesday morning and she is facing charges for assault with a weapon and willfully causing unnecessary suffering to an animal, reports Halifax Today. The video shows Crawley attacking another woman with a small, leashed dog – the woman being attacked appears to be trying to grab the dog and keep it from being harmed.
The incident, which took place on July 1, began when two women confronted two other women who allegedly cut them off at a drive-thru. Police investigated the situation after the disturbing video began to circulate on social media.
On social media, a woman believed to be Crawley, lashes out at those criticizing her, and says that it was “just a dog” to the people who expressed outrage that the dog was used as a weapon.
The police are still investigating the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call the authorities at 902-490-5020, or submit an anonymous tip through Crime Stoppers.
