Brentwood, NY - November 21, 2018 - Suffolk County Police today arrested a man for stabbing two dogs, one fatally at his home in Brentwood on Tuesday, November, 20.
While investigating a domestic dispute involving a man and his girlfriend, Third Precinct Patrol officers and Detective Jen Pape of the Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) discovered two dogs stabbed at a residence on Freeman Ave., at approximately 5:30 a.m.
The investigation revealed Malik Fields, 25, stabbed his family pet pit bull dogs, Storm and Chocolate, between 4 and 5 a.m. Storm, 1, died from his injuries. Chocolate was transported to the Animal Medical Hospital of Centereach, where he is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
There are four other dogs in the residence that were not injured. An order of protection was issued for the dogs by the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, which prevents Fields from interacting with animals.
Fields was charged with two counts of Aggravated Cruelty to Animals. He is being held at the Third Precinct located at 1650 5th Ave., Bay Shore. He is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on November 21.
A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
