Police Searching For Suspects Who Stole Puppy At Gunpoint In Prince George's County

LANDOVER, Md. (WJZ) -- Police are searching for two suspects who allegedly stole a puppy from a man at gunpoint in Landover Monday afternoon.

The victim told police he was walking the dog named Lobo near Kent Village Drive and East Village Drive around 1:40 p.m. when he saw a car pass him then pull over a short distance ahead of him.

A woman walked to the trunk and as the man and the dog walked past, she approached him from behind, showed a gun and demanded the dog, police said. The two struggled over the gun, at which point a man approached.
