Redwood City police have arrested a man suspected of abusing and killing a 4-month-old puppy in front of his 4-year-old daughter.

Alan Velete was arrested Thursday after police were called to an apartment on the 300 block of Redwood Avenue to investigate a report of animal cruelty, said Lt. Sean Hart.The reporting party told investigators that Velete, a 31-year-old Redwood City resident, who had been staying at the apartment with his girlfriend, daughter and girlfriend’s mother, had been severely abusing the family’s terrier mix puppy over the past month, Hart said.

He allegedly killed the dog on Tuesday, Jan. 6 and disposed of it in a trash dumpster, Hart said.

Several of the alleged incidents took place in front of the suspect’s daughter, Hart said.

Velete was arrested on suspicion of felony animal cruelty and felony child endangerment, Hart said.

Anyone with information on this suspect or the abuse the dog suffered is asked to call police at (650) 780-7669.
