London, Ont., police have charged a man after a dog was stabbed multiple times overnight.
Police say they responded to a 911 call a little after 3 a.m. Tuesday for an injured dog in a home in the north end of the city.
The dog owner reported that a person they knew had stabbed the pet multiple times before fleeing on foot.
The injured dog was transported for emergency veterinary treatment. Police say the dog suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Two hours later, at 5:15 a.m., the suspect reappeared at the home, after which police returned and arrested him without incident.
