The York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man seen purposely running over a pit-bull puppy on Tuesday evening.

The Sheriff’s Office says a witness reported seeing a man traveling southbound on Hubbard Lane towards Penniman Road and stop near Hillside Lane.

He then lowered a very young pit-bull puppy onto the street from the vehicle. After putting the puppy on the street, he accelerated and ran the puppy over.

The puppy, estimated to be between 5-8 weeks old, died shortly afterwards.

The man is described as a black male, approximately 30-50 years old with short curly hair. The vehicle was a navy blue van or SUV with a very distinctive thick, white stripe around the entire vehicle. It may be an older boxy-type Chevrolet.

Deputies responded and checked the area but were unable to locate the suspect of the vehicle.

If anyone has information on these crimes or any other crimes please call Crime Line at 1-888 LOCK-U-UP.
