Burglar Exploits Dog’s Friendly Nature And Strangles Him In Front Of His Owner

A traumatized Philadelphia woman named Gretchen Brock is desperately seeking justice after her beloved Yorkie puppy, Zenith, was allegedly murdered in cold blood by a burglar.

As per reports, Gretchen had stepped out of her Spring Garden apartment to do some grocery shopping.

But when she returned 15 minutes later, she was shocked to see a burglar, later identified as 34-year-old Jamel Evans, viciously strangling her 5-lb pooch.

Gretchen screamed in horror as she watched her dog being brutalized in front of her own eyes. But the savage thief aggressively chased the owner out of the apartment, and even punched her hard across the face several times.

By then, Gretchen’s neighbor stepped out to rescue her and pulled her away into his residence.

Soon, the cops arrived and arrested Jamel, while Gretchen rushed a limping Zenith to the vet. However, the fragile baby succumbed to the severe strangulation injuries and multiple broken ribs, all of which were signs of heavy beating and brutal assault.
