Teenager Arrested After French Bulldogs Robbed at Gunpoint



Police have arrested a 15-year-old boy on suspicion of stealing two French Bulldogs in an armed robbery in Downtown Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Police Department announced.

The robbery occurred on Nov. 12 in the early hours of the morning, reported NBC Los Angeles. on the Sixth Street Viaduct which connects Downtown Los Angeles with the Boyle Heights neighborhood, according to police.

The two victims told police that they were walking their dogs, Rhino and Blue, when two males approached them. One of them had a handgun. Per the LAPD, the suspects stole the dogs and left in a dark-colored 2010 to 2013 Nissan.

One Suspect Charged

On Nov. 16, police arrested the 15-year-old boy – who can’t be named due to his age. Two days later, the District Attorney’s Office charged him with two counts of armed robbery.
