A Louisiana man was arrested on Thursday for sexually abusing a local dog in his neighborhood, according to police. The sexual attack on the pit bull was reportedly captured on video and seen by authorities.
The Alexandria Police Department arrested 23-year-old Noah Tomlin on Thursday for the alleged sex crime.
A video of the alleged sexual assault of the dog was reportedly uploaded to Facebook. Multiple people as well as the Humane Society of Louisiana tipped off the police about the purported sexual assault.
The Humane Society of Louisiana said Tomlin walked out of his house and approached a neighbor’s pit bull that was bound by a heavy chain.
WAFB reported, “That’s when the man forced the dog to perform oral sex on him.”
The incident happened in broad daylight and allegedly lasted two minutes.
The owner of the dog was notified of the animal abuse.
Jeff Dorson – the executive director at Humane Society of Louisiana – said “pet detectives” with his organization “helped to secure an arrest of a sexual predator.”
After seeing the “gruesome and disturbing video,” workers with the Humane Society of Louisiana contacted the Alexandria Police Department to report the suspected crime. At first, the police allegedly said the case was an animal control issue. However, the workers allegedly pushed to have a detective investigate the criminal allegations.
Dorson said Tomlin and the owner of the abused dog share the same backyard.
The Humane Society of Louisiana offered to pay for the dog to be examined by a veterinarian. The organization also offered the owner some suggestions on how to protect his dog in the future.
Tomlin was booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center and charged with sexual abuse of an animal. Tomlin reportedly posted a $1,000 bond on Friday.
