Disturbing video shows a Los Angeles man brutally punching a dog in the face in the hallway of an apartment building after being asked to move his white BMW.
Surveillance video, posted online by a resident of the building, shows the unidentified man walking towards the large, fluffy dog, backing it into a corner before punching the dog in the head.
The dog cowers in the corner as it tries to get away from the man, who then kicks the animal several times before attaching its leash – suggesting it is his own dog suffering from violence.
The Anaheim Police Department is looking for a man last seen wearing a black Emirates football jersey who was caught on Ring doorbell footage brutally beating his dog.
Police released a still image of the man, who has yet to be identified
A Los Angeles man was seen brutally beating a dog in the hallway of an apartment building after he got angry when he was asked to move his car, a resident of the building said.
He was seen punching and kicking the dog, who curled up in the corner and tried to miss the man’s assault
He then dragged the dog down the hallway before driving off in a white BMW
As the two walk quickly down the hall, the man kicks again and the dog tries unsuccessfully to dodge the impact.
The dog is kicked at least three more times as the man leads him down the hallway of the Gateway apartment complex near Angel Stadium.
Resident Kris Kelly, who posted the video, said the man was angry after being asked to move his white BMW. She claimed he then took off by car.
Locals began tagging the Anaheim Police Department, and Sergeant Shane Carringer told KTLA he “knew immediately” it would be something the department was investigating.
Police are still looking for the man and have not yet brought any criminal charges.
Local dog owners are expressing their disgust at the video, saying they would never do the same no matter how crazy they were.
Alex Cannas told KTLA, “As a dog owner, I would never kick my dog no matter how badly she did something. It’s not easy to watch.
Cheyenne Martinez expressed her shock when she saw the video saying, “How can you treat a dog like that?” He had no perception of anything.
The incident happened at the Gateway Apartments (pictured), near Angel Stadium
