BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WABC) — A 12-week-old husky puppy has been found after being taken during an armed robbery in Connecticut.
The dog is a red and brown male husky.
The 28-year-old homeowner was robbed and pistol-whipped Wednesday in Bridgeport.
At approximately 1:15 a.m. she was walking the puppy at the intersection of Carrie Street and Hollister Avenue and then sat in her car with the puppy waiting to pick up a relative in the East End.
The victim told police that after a few minutes, three men dressed in black approached him.
He told officers that two of the suspects pointed guns at him and ordered him out of the car. The victim said the suspects tried to steal his car, but were unable to start it.
The suspects then took the puppy, stole $20 in cash and two cellphones, hit him in the head with one of the firearms and fled north on Hollister Avenue toward Stratford Avenue.
The victim suffered a laceration to the head but refused medical attention at the scene.
She said the dog is not yet microchipped and has a large, distinctive bump on its belly.
The puppy is being reunited with his family.
