According to the police, 30-year-old Harrison Hilliard was taken into custody on Friday for the fatal stabbing of 2 dogs in a Fort Worth neighborhood.
On Tuesday, the cops responded to a call around 6:30 p.m. to the 2100 block of Columbia Avenue as a resident called the cops because her dog had been stabbed and killed.
Ruth Soto told she had heard her mastiff named Oso crying on Tuesday evening but she didn’t know what had happened until the next day. She added, “They said when they flipped him over, he was stabbed so many times that they stopped counting”. A knife was found near the dog. She also told that she got a threatening note on her door a week prior to the stabbing. It was written in the note, “Please move your dog away from my fence line. I can’t have your dog bark at me every time I go in my backyard. Do not go to my house to speak to me.”
A video on twitter was uploaded showing the cops arresting Hilliard 3 days after the dogs were found stabbed to death in separate backyards in his neighborhood.
Hilliard was charged for cruelty to animals.
The cops went to a home on Yale Street, near Columbia Avenue, next day of the stabbing incident where an individual reported seeing a stranger in the backyard of the home. The stranger escaped when the person approached him and he also found his dog stabbed to death.
According to Officer Tracy Carter, “To me, this was a heinous crime. We want to get this guy off the streets. We don’t want to see this happen to another dog or anyone.”
