S.F. police looking for alleged puppy thief
December 10, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco police say they are on the lookout for a man who allegedly pepper-sprayed two homeless people before stealing their 6-week-old puppy near Buena Vista Park.

Officer Gordon Shyy says the victims were asleep in a van parked on Buena Vista Avenue West at about 6 a.m. Friday when someone began loudly knocking on the door.

The man told the victims that he was a police officer, Shyy says, but when they opened the door and asked to see his credentials, he pepper-sprayed them and grabbed the puppy.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the victims, a woman and a man, were temporarily blinded and didn’t see where the man fled.

Police are also looking for the dog, which is an American pit bull and Rhodesian Ridgeback mix.
