California: Andrew Ramirez, 44, accused of stabbing tiny rat terrier to death while burglarizing garage

CALIFORNIA -- A Riverside man was arrested Tuesday, Jan. 17, after police say he ransacked his neighbor's garage and stabbed a dog there.

The dog, a tiny Rat Terrier, was taken to a veterinarian but ultimately died from the encounter, said Riverside police Officer Ryan Railsback.

Officers were called to the 4300 block of Victoria Avenue about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday to find 44-year-old Andrew Ramirez with fresh blood on his shirt, according to a Riverside police statement.

Ramirez was detained while officers tried to find out what happened.

They learned that he had gone into his neighbor's garage, raided it and stabbed the little dog there with a sharp object, the statement said.

Officer Ryan Railsback said Thursday that it's not clear what motivated the attack.

Ramirez was arrested on suspicion of cruelty to an animal and first-degree residential burglary. Bail was set at $35,000 and as of Thursday morning he had not been released from the Robert Presley Detention Center.
