SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A man suspected of throwing a Chihuahua dog to its death from the seventh floor of a San Francisco parking garage during a car burglary has been arrested.
San Francisco Police say 35-year-old Wakeen Best was arrested Sunday after he allegedly broke into a car and tossed the black and tan dog to its death.
On Saturday, officers responded at around 2 p.m. to the 400 block of Stockton Street regarding an auto burglary involving a deceased dog.
Police say the owner of 4-year-old Dunky first thought the dog had escaped from the vehicle and fell off the parking garage.
However, once the owner went back to his car, he discovered broken glass and blood and called the police.
Officials saw footage that showed Best during the break-in and immediately recognized him.
Best was held on suspicion of felony burglary, animal cruelty, grand theft, possession of stolen property, carrying a concealed weapon, vandalism and probation violation.
Although an arrest has been made, anyone with information on this case is encouraged to call the SFPD Anonymous Tip Line at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the beginning of the message.
