(CLEVELAND)– On March 9th at approximately 1:00pm, at the corner of East 111th and Superior Ave, a witness reported seeing three African American men, between the ages of 16 and 20 years old, taking turns kicking and beating a dog with bricks and sticks. One wore a black hoodie with a Nike logo and black sweatpants, one wore a khaki-colored hoodie and jeans, and another wore a grey winter hat and a North Face fleece.
The dog, named Indiana Bones, is a one-year-old white and fawn-colored bully breed mix. Currently, he is at the Cleveland APL receiving treatment for his injuries and will require surgery. Veterinarians who have examined Indiana have concluded he was hit by a car prior to being beaten by the three suspects.
Cleveland APL Humane Investigators are asking for anyone with information about this incident or the identity or location of the suspects to call the Cleveland APL’s Humane Investigations Hotline at (216) 377-1630. A $500 reward is being offered to the first person who provides information that leads to the apprehension of a prosecutable suspect.
