BETHPAGE, N.Y. (AP) — A Long Island man is accused of ordering his dog to attack a party guest during an argument.
Nassau police say George Jordan-Gonzalez punched the victim twice in the face after the two got into an argument at his Bethpage home around 2:45 a.m. Wednesday.
They say when the 21-year-old victim tried to leave the other man released his pit bull on him.
Police say the victim stabbed the dog with a pocket knife as it dragged him around the house. When he tried calling 911, police say Jordan-Gonzalez grabbed the cellphone.
Another guest called police.
The victim suffered cuts to his arms, legs and shoulders. The extent of the dog’s injuries wasn’t immediately known.
Police charged Jordan-Gonzalez with assault and robbery. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
