Authorities have been searching for Darnell Saulsbury for months for allegedly torturing a puppy by stabbing the defenseless animal with a broken bottle and knife in the lobby of 125th Street and St. Nicholas Ave. in Harlem. On Friday, authorities arrested Saulsbury at Penn Station and charged him with felony animal cruelty.
Saulsbury, 27, was arraigned at Manhattan Supreme Court and is currently being held in jail without bail.
According to the New York Post, the egregious deed was caught on video four months ago showing Saulsbury torturing the pup for 45 minutes using the broken bottle and knife to stab the five-month-old puppy in the neck, throat, and torso. He then threw the dead puppy on a pile of trash.
"It would make you sick," one law enforcement source said of the video.
Since then Saulsbury has been hiding from authorities.
If found guilty, Saulsbury faces a maximum sentence of four years in prison. He has a past history of mental illness and domestic violence.
The identity of the puppy nor his owner is still unknown.
Rest in peace innocent little puppy. We hope you get justice.
