A woman’s beloved pouch was stolen Monday when she left him leashed outside a grocery store in Williamsburg, police said.
The woman left her terrier mix dog outside on a leash while she shopped for groceries around 9 p.m. inside Green Corner Fish & Farmers Market on the corner of Humboldt Street and Flushing Avenue. When she returned, only the leash was there, her pet was gone.
Surveillance video from the scene shows two men approach the dog, one appearing to keep lookout while the other snatches the dog and walks off. The NYPD has released the footage in hopes of identifying the two men.
Anyone with information regarding the identity of the men is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
