Beloved remedy canine present in Mill Basin, Brooklyn after automobile theft
BROOKLYN (WABC) – A beloved therapy dog stolen from a violent car theft in Brooklyn last weekend was found.
Luna was found on Utica Ave and Linden Blvd. in Brooklyn, said the owner’s granddaughter, Isabella.
Police released a disturbing video showing the suspect stealing a 73-year-old woman before she drove away with her dog in the car.
Authorities say the suspect pulled the victim out of her Honda Civic near Mill Avenue and Mayfair Drive just after 1 p.m. last Sunday.
The car was found abandoned in Williamsburg on Wednesday, but 9-year-old Luna was still missing.
“He grabbed my leg and pulled me to the ground, I hit my head,” said the victim, who did not want to be identified. “I’m very sad now and I think about my dog … Luna is more important to me than anything else.”
The victim’s family called on social media to help find Luna.
The police are still looking for the suspect and trying to find out who it is.
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or in Spanish at 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
