BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WABC) — A 12-week-old husky puppy has been found after being taken during an armed robbery in Connecticut.
The dog is a red and tan male husky.
The 28-year-old owner was robbed and whipped in Bridgeport on Wednesday.
At around 1:15 a.m., he was walking the pup at the intersection of Carrie Street and Hollister Avenue, then sat in his car with the pup waiting to pick up a relative in the East End.
The victim told police that after a few minutes, three men dressed in all black approached him.
He told officers that two of the suspects pointed guns at him and ordered him out of the car. The victim said the suspects tried to steal his car, but were unable to start it.
The suspects then took the pup, stole $20 cash and two cell phones, hit him in the head with one of the guns, and fled north on Hollister Avenue towards Stratford Avenue.
The victim suffered a laceration to the head, but refused to seek treatment at the scene.
He said the dog was not yet microchipped and had a distinctive large bump on its stomach.
The puppy is reunited with its family.
