(Scroll down for video) A woman was horrified when a big dog grabbed hold of her small dog.

The woman of Melbourne, Australia, knew that she had to act quickly to save her pet from the vicious attack.

Ann Bendouli was walking her dog Lexie, along Hampton Beach when a Staffordshire terrier grabbed her one-year-old Jack Russell, and began shaking it like a rag doll.

Bendouli and the owner of the other dog, attempted to stop the attack but were unsuccessful. In a desperate bid to save her dog, Bendouli shoved her finger up the dog’s bottom. It worked, and the dog let go of her pet and ran away.

Bendouli, who had previously witnessed a fatal dog attack, had researched a method of intervention against dog attacks. “They said if you have a lighter, put it on the bottom of the attacking dog,” Bendouli said.

However, she did not have a lighter and the first thing that came to mind was to use her finger. The Staffordshire terrier was apparently in a state of shock by the maneuver and immediately let go of the wounded Jack Russell.

The small dog required more than ten stitches after the incident.

Barbora Williams, who is the owner of the Staffordshire terrier was also injured. She will need to have plastic surgery after the tip of her toe was bitten off by the dog while trying to separate the two.

Authorities are investigating the incident and are taking statements from witnesses.

The suspect with his pacifier

(Scroll down for video) A bizarre incident was caught on video.

A teenager was seen walking around while sucking a pacifier before robbing a man at gunpoint.

Police in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, are asking the public to help them identify the suspect, who has been nicknamed binky bandit.

The suspect, who is believed to be about 18 years old, is wanted for carjacking and stealing a man's wallet in the parking lot of a convenience store around 8:00 p.m. on
Friday night.

Police also believe that the teen may be on drugs, and therefore used the pacifier. The pacifier has become a recent phenomenon with teens who take drugs.

Apparently, some drugs cause the user to have the urge to chew on something. For some reason, a pacifier became the choice for young people.

The suspect approached the victim in the parking lot and asked him a few questions before pulling out a .38 caliber pistol.

He demanded his wallet and vehicle, a two-door red 1997 Grand Prix.

The victim did not resist and gave the suspect what he demanded. The teen took the possessions and fled.

A surveillance camera in the Circle L store captured a clear image of the young man, who police say has a slender build and about 5 feet 10 inches tall.

(Scroll down for video) A broken hearted man is trying to win his wife back by getting her a new iPhone 6.

Darius Wlodarski, 41, of Swindon, England, said that his wife of 20 years left him last month, due to his obsession with gadgets.

He misses his wife Joanna very much and is determined to get a second chance so he can be the husband and father his wife wants him to be.

To show his love and commitment to his wife, Polish-born Wlodarski, waited outside the Apple store in Cabot Circus, Bristol, for 44 hours just to get his hands on the new iPhone 6.

Wlodarski does not know if his gesture will win his wife back. However, he hopes it will bring happiness to the woman he loves.

“I know a phone cannot make up for everything that happened between us, but I want to make her happy. I want to apologize to my wife and daughter. I have camped out for days. People in restaurants supported me, and gave me food and drinks,” he said.

Bizarre coincidence helps man solve crime while reporting theft to police (video)

The thief selling the surf boards

(Scroll down for video) A man did impressive detective work to recover his expensive surf boards.

The surfer of Melbourne, Australia, attempted to track down the man who had stolen his surf boards.

He discovered that the thief was the man who was standing next to him at a police station while reporting the crime.

Ross Moresi discovered that two of his prized surfboards, worth $1,000 each, were stolen. He decided to do something about it. He sent photos of his surf boards to a number of local surf shops and secondhand dealers in hopes of catching the man responsible for the theft.

Moresi soon received a call from Zak Surfboards in Thornbury, saying they had both boards along with the video footage and the name of the man who had sold the boards to them.

Armed with this evidence, Moresi went straight to the Prahran police station where he met Daniel Burne, the same man who sold the surfboards.

Apparently, Burne came in at the same time to post bail and gave his name to officers. Moresi was surprised to hear that the man had the same name as the thief who stole the surfboards.

“I looked at him and said ‘it’s your unlucky day,’” said Moresi, who then alerted police to the situation. Officers had a hard time believing the story as it seemed like a scene out of a movie.

Burne was arrested on the spot when he allegedly admitted to the incident. The surveillance footage confirmed that he was indeed the thief. Burne was charged with handling stolen goods, obtaining property by deception and committing a felony while on bail.

On Thursday, Burne pleaded guilty to all charges and received 120 hours of community service. He was ordered to pay the surf shop that had bought the stolen goods.

(Scroll down for video) A thief who wanted money, showed that he is not all evil as he saved a man’s life during the robbery.

The thief and his friends were preparing to blow up an ATM when he pulled the innocent bystander to safety after he walked toward the area of the explosives.

Surveillance videos of the gas station convenience store in Sao Paulo, Brazil, captured the moment a group of thieves broke into the store and placed explosives and wires on the ATM.

Dressed in hoodies and helmets, two of the bandits can be seen playing with the front of the ATM for several seconds while another robber emptied the cash register.

The group then took to the streets and started running before one of them pointed to the man who was walking close to the area that was about to blow up.

At first, one of the thieves tried to yell at the man to get away, but when the man ignored him, the thief ran up to him and grabbed him by the neck before pulling him in the opposite direction. Seconds later, the bomb exploded.

Fortunately, both men manage to escape harm. It is unknown whether the thieves were caught.

(Scroll down for video) Israeli generals greeted the world’s most advanced submarine off the coast of Haifa, according to video uploaded to the Internet.

The Dolphin submarine, stopped its advance from Germany, at the site where the INS Dakar sank about 45 years ago.

The INS Dakar, a British-made submarine, was acquired by Israel and set sail on January 9th, 1968, but disappeared while heading to Israel.

Despite an extensive search, the wreckage was found only 30 years later. 69 Israeli commandos died as a result of the incident.

Among those attending the ceremony in Haifa on Sunday, were five Israeli commandos who were reassigned to a different position shortly before the INS Dakar disappeared.

Two additional Dolphin submarines will enter service in four years.

The submarine fleet of Israel, will be one of the largest and most powerful in the region extending from the Indian Ocean through the Persian Gulf and Europe.

"The Dolphin can dive deeper, go a longer time underwater and can operate at a level we have not seen yet," a commander of the Israeli navy said.

New immigrants from Ukraine at Ben Gurion Airport

Hundreds of new immigrants arrived in Israel, just before the start of the Jewish New Year holiday, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

The final group of new immigrants for the Jewish year of 5774 arrived to Israel on Monday.

140 new immigrants from Russia and Ukraine arrived at Ben Gurion International Airport, aboard flights organized by The Jewish Agency for Israel and the Ministry of Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption.

About 4,200 Ukrainian immigrants arrived to Israel fleeing unrest this year, 200% more than the same period last year.

Oksana, 39, and her husband, Viatscheslav Zheludev, 41, were among the 140 new Ukrainian immigrants who arrived to Israel with their 16-year-old son, Artur, from the city of Lugansk in the embattled eastern Ukraine.

The family had spent the past few weeks in the cellar of their home without power, water or food, due to the ongoing fighting in the Ukraine. Waiting to greet them at Ben Gurion Airport was the Zheludevs’ 18-year-old daughter, Alexandrina Zheludev, who immigrated to Israel last year, with The Jewish Agency for Israel’s SELA (Students Before Parents) program.

It was an emotional reunion for the family who had frequently lost contact with their daughter amid the brutal urban battles between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian separatists in the war-torn city of Lugansk.

The group was warmly welcomed by the Minister of Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption Sofa Landver, and Chairman of The Jewish Agency for Israel Natan Sharansky, who himself was born in Donetsk in the eastern Ukraine.

In addition to the 4,200 immigrants from Ukraine and 4,500 immigrants from Russia, around 6,000 immigrants arrived from France this year - more than any other country.

Around 3,600 new immigrants from the United States and some 400 from Canada, also arrived to Israel this year, a slight increase from last.

South America saw a 20% increase in immigrants to Israel, with a total of 1,100 new immigrants including 300 from Brazil and 310 from Argentina.

Across Europe, 570 new immigrants arrived from the United Kingdom, 260 from Belgium and 270 from Italy. Around 230 immigrants arrived from Ethiopia.

In general, immigration to Israel this year was up 28% compared to the previous year, which represents a five-year high. An estimated total of 24,800 new immigrants arrived to Israel throughout the course of the year.

Commenting on this year’s aliyah increase, the Jewish Agency for Israel’s Executive Chairman, Natan Sharansky, stated: “The increase in immigration from the four corners of the globe even in a year in which our enemies tried to undermine our security and challenge Israel’s legitimacy demonstrates that Israel is a country that guarantees both the personal safety of its citizens and the future of the Jewish people.”

Food truck selling meth

(Scroll down for video) A food truck business was shut down after police found that they were selling meth as a side dish to tacos, prosecutors in Colorado said.

The Colorado Attorney General’s Office announced one of the largest single incidents of methamphetamine seizures by law enforcement in state history in partnership with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Colorado Department of Revenue Criminal Tax Enforcement Section, The West Metro Drug Task Force, the Adams County District Attorney’s Office, Thornton Police Department and Denver Police Department.

17 individuals have been indicted by the statewide grand jury for operating a network that sold methamphetamine throughout the Denver-metro area.

Known as “Operation Cargo,” the 64-count indictment alleges charges that include violations of the Colorado Organized Crime Control Act, Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance, Conspiracy, Money Laundering, and Tax Evasion.

“After conducting five wiretaps over five weeks, fifty-five pounds of meth was taken off the streets,” said Attorney General John Suthers.

“The brazenness of this ring was astounding. For example, customers could literally walk up to the food truck and order a side of meth with their tacos,” he said.

Juan Carlos Gonzalez (D.O.B. 08/23/77), Monica Gonzalez (D.O.B. 05/04/60), Oscar Ruvalcaba (D.O.B. 06/01/85), Luz Gonzalez (D.O.B.05/27/64), Maria Arellano a/k/a “Nena” (D.O.B. 08/31/75), Patrick Shane Lorenzo (D.O.B. 08/20/79), Enrique Campos (D.O.B. 07/15/70), Jennifer Seipp (D.O.B. 11/17/82), Joe Baier (D.O.B. 06/06/57), Tina LeBlanc (D.O.B. 03/10/75), Frank Hardy (D.O.B. 06/10/58), Matthew Skipp a/k/a “Mateo” (D.O.B, 06/12/62), James Michael Loeffler (D.O.B. 11/18/56), Jennifer Joy Ganje (D.O.B. 09/01/74), Jason Jacquez (D.O.B. 09/11/74), Danielle A. Ulibarri (D.O.B. 01/10/73), and Hugo Macias Arevalo (D.O.B. 04/02/72) were all named in the indictment.

Juan Carlos Gonzalez was the leader of the Gonzalez Drug Trafficking Organization. Gonzalez coordinated with others to primarily import meth as well as cocaine from Mexico into California for delivery in Colorado.

Oscar Ruvalcaba is accused of being the “load car” driver, who transported the drugs into Colorado and delivered them to Juan Carlos Gonzalez.

According to the indictment, upon receipt of the drugs, Gonzalez would distribute them primarily through his aunts, Monica Gonzalez and Luz Gonzalez, as well as to others in the ring to sell.

Maria Arellano is accused of selling the meth out of her taco trailer located at 8th and Federal Avenue in Denver. All of the accused are currently in custody except for Patrick Lorenzo and James Loeffler, who remain at large.

The baby, identified as Tiny Ntuthuko Mahlangu, his 38-year-old mother, Lindiwe Masilela, and his nanny, Sabenele Dlamini, spent 24 hours behind bars.

The women were arrested after a fight broke out between them and a neighbor. However, they were not charged and were freed the next day without appearing before a judge.

The two adults faced charges of assault and malicious damage to property. Officers told them that they might have to appear in court on a later date.

Masilela said that her newborn son is having trouble breathing after breathing in the strong smell of urine and dirt of the police holding cells.

“He was locked up for a crime he did not commit. He's just an innocent child,“ Masilela said.

“We were given a blood-soaked blanket to keep ourselves warm,” she added.

Police spokesperson Selvy Mohlala confirmed the arrests and said that police had no choice but to lock up the mother with her baby because “no one was home to care for the baby.”

A woman was arrested, charged and convicted of harassment after sending a greeting card to her neighbor, prosecutors in Minnesota said.

Now, the woman of Moorhead, has been sentenced to 90 days in jail with all but two days suspended.

65-year-old Sharon Lavonne Rousseau, was convicted by a Clay County jury of one count of harassment in the face of a restraining order.

The restraining order was issued in the Clay County District Court after a difficult long history of discord between the woman and her neighbor.

Rousseau, who lives on the 1100 block of South 5th Avenue, began fighting with her neighbor over a fence. After being issued a restraining order, the defendant sent a greeting card to her neighbor.

The woman’s attorney however, claimed that sending the card did not cause any damage to the neighboring family, and therefore should not be considered harassment.

A judge sentenced the woman to serve 90 days in jail. However, all but two days of the sentence was suspended. Rousseau was also sentenced to a year of supervised probation.
