BIZARRE: Dog held hostage!

Prince! Prince!
Prince! Prince!

A puppy is recovering after a man took him hostage during a domestic dispute!

A call for help about domestic trouble turned into a case of animal cruelty. A five-week-old puppy beaten, strangled and taken hostage.

The police report shows a man went to a home near East 114th and Superior in Cleveland, saw the puppy, Prince, on the porch and started punching the dog. He was apparently angry over seeing Andrea McGowan with another man.

A relative grabbed Prince and brought the puppy inside, but the angry lover allegedly went in through a window, choked the dog and left with it.

Officers later found the man and Prince. Cleveland Fifth District Investigators now handling the case and will turn it over to the prosecutors.
