Man demands sex in exchange for dog’s return

dempkeyAnd the winner of our Bad Samaritan of the Year award is … Alfredo Jaime Dempkey, who police say found a teenaged girl’s missing dog in the Los Angeles area, then threatened to keep and torture the pet unless she paid him or provided him with sex.

Dempkey, 27, of Lancaster, California, was arrested by Hawthorne Police Friday night.

“I think someone like that is sick,” the 17-year-old dog owner told the Torrance Daily Breeze.

The girl was at work Friday evening when her family notified her that her dog, Pineapple, a 2-year-old cocker spaniel-toy poodle mix, had disappeared. 

Dempkey, calling himself “Anthony,” called the girl — apparently getting the number off the dog’s collar — and told her he had found the dog and wanted $70 for its return.

“At first I was, `OK, someone’s found my dog,”‘ the girl said. “But then when he asked for money and when he said if I didn’t have money he wanted something else, I got scared. He asked for sex.”

The girl said Dempkey also threatened to torture the dog if she didn’t give in to his demands. “I started crying,” she said. “He said, `If you don’t want to do anything or if you don’t want to give up money, I guess you don’t want your dog.”

The girl eventually agreed to meet Dempkey at  the El Pollo Loco restaurant at Hawthorne Boulevard and Imperial Highway.

When Dempkey arrived with the dog, he was met instead by the victim’s father and police. He was arrested and the dog was returned, unharmed, to the owner.

Dempkey, it turned out, was a registered sex offender who served a prison term for forced oral copulation, the Daily Breeze reported.  He was taken into custody on a suspected parole violation, but police say he could face other charges, including extortion.
