Man attacks dog for being racist.
YONKERS — A black man who had grown tired of the incessant barking of a dog that reportedly dislikes minorities was arrested Monday night after he slashed its face, police said.
The German shepherd lost an eye, and the suspect — who worked for an oil delivery business where the dog stood guard — was arrested on a felony aggravated cruelty charge. He also was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor.
Andrew Owens, 58, was arraigned Tuesday in City Court after spending the night in jail. He admitted to the crime, police said.
