Man arrested for stabbing dogs

Police on Long Island say they arrested a man for stabbing two dogs, one of them fatally, at his home.

Suffolk County police say it happened approximately 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday in Brentwood.  Police were called to the Freeman Ave. home for a domestic dispute between the man and his girlfriend.

Police found the two stabbed dogs.  Police say that 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 was being treated for non-life-threatening injuries. 

There were four other dogs in the home 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.
