“She was approached by a female and male suspect who indicated that they didn’t like the way she was treating her dog,” Detective Ryan Lee of the Los Angeles Police Department told ABC7. “There were no other words exchanged. The victim then went to use the ATM machine that was inside of the market. And then, with her back turned, she was attacked.”
Police also told the outlet they saw no indication the victim mistreated the dog after reviewing all the surveillance video.
The suspects — described by the LAPD as a Black female wearing all black clothing with black shoes, and a Hispanic male wearing a black and white sweater, blue jeans, and black shoes — wrestled the woman to the ground before the man took off with her dog.
Surveillance footage released from the robbery (above) sees the female suspect knock the woman down before she too made her way out of the store. The woman tried to fight back, and was even seen going after the robbers in an attempt to retrieve her dog, but was unsuccessful.
The dog, an 11-year old gold Pitbull/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix named Drake, boasts some unique markings, including a zig-zagged pattern on his back and a white patch on his chest (photos below).
