The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office said that they have arrested 30-year-old Marvin Riley, after being accused of causing the death of his neighbor’s dog and punching a homeowner in the face.

Riley has been charged with animal cruelty, burglary and battery.

According to the criminal complaint, Riley broke into the home of Bernadette Salazar, and he stole her Shih Tzu called Charlie Brown.

Riley then walked to the home of Esther M., who owns two pit bulls. Riley threw the Shih Tzu to the pit bulls, and they attacked it.

By the time Esther pulled her pit bulls way, the Shih Tzu was already dead. In an unrelated incident, Riley broke into a man’s home and hit him in the face with a metal pipe.

The man fell unconscious, and was taken to the UNM Hospital, where he is being treated.
