Officers arrived to a store on Turk Street in San Francisco on Saturday around 11:45 p.m. Officials say after interviewing people that a man and woman, who had fled the scene before police arrived, had been arguing when the suspect threw canned goods at the woman.

After that, they said the suspect grabbed the victim’s 4-month-old Cocker Spaniel from the arms of another person, and “forcefully slammed the puppy on the floor of the store.”

Officers say they found the victim and her puppy, who was named Prince, near Turk and Taylor streets. The puppy later died at San Francisco Animal Care And Control.

Police identified the suspect as 23-year-old Delos Pierre Gallon. He’s wanted for domestic violence, kidnapping and felony animal cruelty charges. Police then advised that anyone who sees the suspect should call 911 and  Anyone with information on this incident should contact investigators.
