Elderly woman assaulted, dog snatched
The woman, named Audrey, said she was about to get into her car when a suspect assaulted her in front of her home, snagged her 7-year-old shih tzu, Sugar Daddy, and tried to steal her second shih tzu, Baby Doll.
“He caught Sugar Daddy, and he tried to get Baby Doll,” the woman, who wasn’t identified by her full name, told WXYZ. “He couldn’t get Baby Doll, she fought back. He took Sugar Daddy and left.”
A suspect, described as in his 20s, was waiting in the woman’s driveway, where the attack took place, and another suspect was waiting nearby in a car.
Surveillance video from a nearby school showed a car backing up to Audrey’s house on Detroit’s West Side, and what appears to be two men trying to steal the dogs.
Baby Doll ran from the men, and almost got run over by a garbage truck as she fled.
Audrey and her family members have put up flyers about Sugar Daddy’s disappearance and are offering a reward his return.
