A Redwood City, Calif., man was arrested on Thursday for allegedly killing a young puppy, reported Friday's CBS San Francisco News.

The horrific act of cruelty was made all the more heinous because the 31-year-old suspect, Alan Velete, is accused of killing the puppy in front of his own four-year-old daughter.

According to the police, Velete had been severely abusing the four-month-old puppy for a month before the pup was ultimately killed on Jan. 6.

Velete's actions have him facing two felonies - one for animal cruelty and one for child endangerment.
