A 65-year-old man was punched in the face while walking his dog on Grand Street by a much younger assailant. From DNA Info:
The victim was walking on Grand Street near Graham Avenue on Tuesday, March 17 around 12:10 a.m. when the suspect tried to pet his dog, police said.
The suspect, who was about 20 years old, said, “I got two pit bulls and your dog is a p—y” before hitting the victim in the face, causing swelling, redness and a bloody nose, police said.
It was unclear what kind of dog the victim owned.
Is there such thing as a dog hate crime?
