NYC Teen Gives Dog Owner ‘5 Seconds To Run’ Before Stealing French Bulldog

A teenager was apprehended in Queens, New York City, following an alarming incident on Christmas morning. The young perpetrator brandished a firearm at another teenager who was out walking his dog, subsequently stealing the innocent kid's beloved French bulldog. The Queens District Attorney's Office reported that the incident occurred around 9 a.m. outside the Queensborough Houses in Long Island City. The victim, a 15-year-old boy, was confronted by the 16-year-old thief. The assailant forcefully pressed the gun against the boy's chest, menacingly instructing him to flee within a mere five seconds.

Terrified, the victim promptly dropped the leash and made a hasty escape before promptly contacting the police. Approximately 15 minutes later, NYPD officers fortuitously spotted the 16-year-old culprit in possession of the stolen dog, not far from the scene of the crime near 38-16 10th Street. The officers witnessed the suspect discarding a firearm over a nearby fence, further solidifying his guilt. The police promptly recovered the discarded weapon, a 9mm gun loaded with 12 rounds of ammunition, from a nearby parking lot.
