She said he also tried to burn her with a lighter before he ran away. Officers found him and said he got upset about being arrested because he thought the woman should be arrested, too.

The man said he had no idea how it got there and suggested that someone put it there when he was assaulted and robbed. No one has been charged.

They said they saw clothing and dog feces and urine throughout the apartment. The dog that was alive was filthy, abnormally skinny and appeared to have started eating one of the dead dogs, police said. Humane agents were called to take the live dog.
