Colerain man accused of snapping dog's neck indicted
COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKRC) - A Colerain man accused of assaulting his neighbor before snapping a dog's neck and throwing another dog in the street was indicted on Wednesday.
Jamal David is being charged with three counts of harassment with a bodily substance, two counts of cruel treatment against companion animals, assault, and resisting arrest.
Officers say Jamal David approached his neighbor's girlfriend who was outside with her own dog. The woman called 911.
“I was letting my dog out to use the bathroom and he (David) comes over and he tried to like push me away from my dog and tried to like put his hands on me,” the woman said.
She described the man as acting crazy as he turned on his own dogs.
“The guy ( David) starts cussing at me and then I hear (dog whimper/scream) and the dog is dead. It’s dead in his arms and he throws him out in the street and stomps the other one’s head,” she said.
When police arrive Colerain Township Detective Mark Stockmeier says it took several officers to get David under control.
“Once we got him in handcuffs he became very irate and started shouting profanities and words we were not able to understand,” said Det. Stockmeier. “As we attempted to get him into the police cruiser he was kicking and spitting, he had to be maced a few times, he spit on three different officers.”
David is being held on $700,000 bond.
