LOS ANGELES (KABC) — A 15-year-old boy was arrested last week for allegedly stealing two French bulldogs in an armed robbery on the Sixth Street Bridge, police say.
The incident happened last Saturday.
The dogs’ owners, Bayron Osorio and Oxana Bolanos, were sitting on the bridge when an unidentified suspect pulled up next to them, got out and claimed the dogs, Osorio said.
“As he got closer he pulled the gun and again told me where I’m from and I didn’t tell him anything and he just pointed a gun at my girlfriend and she started crying,” he told Eyewitt News.
The Los Angeles County Attorney’s Office has since filed a criminal complaint alleging double armed robbery.
The dogs, whose names are Rhino and Blue, have still not been found.
Osorios said the rhino is brown and weighs around 22 to 24 pounds. He has since created an Instagram page to publicize the robbery. He said anyone with tips could email him at email@example.com.
The incident is being further investigated. Anyone with information is asked to call the LAPD.
