Man Arrested For Throwing Neighbor’s Dog By The Leash

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A man was arrested for allegedly torturing an animal on Long Island on Saturday afternoon, police said.

Police said 56-year-old Jamie Sanchez threw his neighbor’s dog by the leash into the air and onto the street in Franklin Square at 2:15 p.m. after getting into an argument.

The neighbor, 54, was walking her 1-year-old Dachshund named Coco when the argument happened. Police said Sanchez threatened to let his dog loose on the neighbor and her dog if she walked her dog on his property.

“When the victim threatened to call the police, Sanchez grabbed the leash from his neighbor gaining control of her dog. The defendant then flung her dog six feet into the air and ten feet into the middle of the road causing Coco to sustain injuries to her tail and rupture stitches from a prior recent surgery,” according to the police report.

Coco was taken to her veterinarian for treatment to her injuries.

Sanchez faces charges of overdriving, torturing animals and reckless endangerment to property. Sanchez will be arraigned on Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.

    People … People!!! This isn’t about ethnicity, race, culture, etc. It’s about VIOLENCE. And all perpetrators should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law; including those who abuse the pooper-scooper law. No where in the law will you find allowance for hurling an animal through the air JUSTICE for pooping on someone’s property. The article read (verbatim)” … “IF” she walked her dog on his property”. There was nothing about previous altercations but even if there had been the actions he took will never justify the means. We have a real problem within our society and THAT is the REAL problem. VIOLENCE seems to be acceptable to too many. And then there are those who take personality altering drugs who don’t need them while those who do need them don’t take them. We’re all living in a place now where more and more have become callous to violence and that is what’s wrong. If the article depicts the situation accurately, I hope they lock his ass up in an institution, not jail. Anyone who is capable of acting out on an animal is capable of acting out on a human being at some point in their life. They’re cowards and they deserve to get what they give. Until our laws and law officials PROVE they mean business, we’ll see more and more of this as times get tougher and more people cannot control their emotions and anger. Desperate people do desperate things – the more desperate our lives become, the worse things will be.

    i have said before: these are disgusting , sick, primitives who take their over-all impotency- i can bet they are mentally and phisically impotents- and show off their “macho” side by attacking defenseless animals.
    the creature belongs in jail, or better, a mental high security institution- i read somewhere that is much worse than in jail.
    there should be much tougher laws regarding animal abuse, whoever can inflict suffering to a poor animal, can easily kill you or me, these people have absolutely no elementary human instincts, cannot be called “animals” either…..

  5. MattGMD says:

    What a poor excuse for a man. A real man with strength of character and civilized manners would never allow himself to get so out of control to behave like this.

  6. MEG says:

    WHAT A HORRIBLE HORRIBLE PERSON..CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE WHAT HE DID TO HIS KIDS WHEN THEY PEED IN THIER DIAPERS!!! THIS PERSON SHOULD SPEND AT LEAST A MINIMUM OF THREE YRS IN THE STATE PENN!!

  7. FrankG says:

    What about destruction of property with the dog peeing on and wrecking his lawn. Can’t someone have love for their property like someone has love for a dog?

  8. Question... says:

    “Sanchez faces charges of overdriving,…”

    What is ‘overdriving’? Explain.

  9. Bell Toller says:

    Whats the problem lately with certain ethnic groups abusin animals? It is not right.

    Also anyone that abuses animals should face a minmum of 10 years in jail.

    If you feel a neighbors dog is urinating on your lawn take a photo and go to the police station.

    1. Ring Dinger says:

      Bell,

      I know! I hate those crazy-ass white folk too!

      1. Latesha says:

        Hey Ring Dinger, He happens to be spanish. Its people like you who give man kind a bad name. And, maybe those “Crazy ass white folk” hate your ass, because your nothing but an ignorant ass. Get over your self, and get a life. I feel sorry for your future children as well, the way you think, thats why theres too much hate in this world. Look in the mirror, and see what you really are.
        IGNORANT.

  10. badman says:

    he shouldn’t be too hard to find in Franklin Square. If he’s listed, the dbag better unlist himself pretty soon.

  11. JOHN says:

    This man has no respect for animals,and had absolutely no right to injure this poor defenseless dog.I hope that the owner of this dog presses charges ,and the authorities throw the book at him and give him the maximum punishment allowable .Cruelty to animals needs to be as serious as cruelty to people!

  12. Bruce Goldensteinberg says:

    It’s always one or two ethnic groups of people that continue to abuse animals consistently. This criminal represents one group. Can anyone here guess the other?

    1. nathan says:

      Nice try at attempting to stir up racial hatred by choosing a fake Jewish surname and slandering other races. You think we don’t see thru you? You’re not even any good at stirring up trouble loser.

    2. Bell Toller says:

      very true Bruce even though I am not trying to profile.

    3. Latesha says:

      Ummm, JEWISH?????????

  13. kendra says:

    i am very very upset by this story why would he do that kind of damage to that man dog when the dog had nothing to do with that argument…tis…dis diss he ought to be ashamed of himself.

  14. carl says:

    WELL WENT HE GET IN JAIL,HE WILL SEE HOW MACH HE IS,

    HE CAN TEST IS MAN HOO THIRE,WHERE HE GET HIS A@# KICK IN.

  15. thor's hammer says:

    well, what a macho man you aren’t. you need a taste of what you dished out to that defenseless dog. i propose a road trip to the desert southwest, where you will be dressed in skivvies and bound by your wrists at the far end of about 50 feet of good cowboy lasso rope and treated to an up close tour of sagebrush, cactus, tumbleweed and scorpions. by the way, you are 150 from anywhere and partway through your tour, oops the guide rope is dropped. oh yes the fire ants are particularly attracted to honey and you have bare feet.

  16. Cathy says:

    Hang the MORON!!!…anyone who attempts or even hurts an animal deserves some sort of REAL PUNISHMENT…not a slap on the wrist….

  17. 80 year old woman says:

    It is said that a civilization is judged by the way it treats its animals…this implies that this man should get a harsh sentence for attacking an innocent small dog!
    I, too, had a 6 foot 2 man attack my small dog by kicking him into the air while he was sleeping in front of the park bench I was sitting on and when I went to defend my angel this man threw me down two times onto the sidewalk.

    1. Laura says:

      Oh no!! I’m so sorry to hear that – how awful for both of you!! I hope you have both since recovered and that he got what’s coming to him. Even if we don’t “see” it, I have to believe we all get what we deserve eventually.

  18. JIM SMITH says:

    WHY IS IT THAT PEOPLE TAKE THEIR ANGER AND FRUSTRATIONS OUT ON POOR HELPLESS ANIMALS? I HOPE THIS MAN IS PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW. THESE POOR ANIMALS WHETHER THEY ARE CATS OR DOGS DO NOT DESERVE TO BE ABUSED BY ANYONE.

    1. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx says:

      clearly this man is upset by the high price of gas because of Obama

  19. doc1 says:

    Larry the *sshole. put a cigar up your behind!

    he looks like mark bittman of the new york times

  21. MS says:

    <>

    Of course, unless Sanchez was hallucinating. What gives people a right to walk his / her dog on other people’s property?

  22. right again says:

    Wouldn’t it have been easier just to video the neighbor’s dog on his property and then present the evidence to the proper authorities?

    1. Rod in says:

      And what will the “proper authorities” do? Dumb shat.

  23. Douglas O says:

    At least the woman had her dachshund on a leash. Here in Thailand there are no animal control officials and the dogs just roam and defecate wherever they wish. You can tell the level of civilization of a country by how they control feral dogs and cats. The more primitive the country, the less control is exercised over dogs and cats.

    1. CJP says:

      Then go back to New York

    2. JERRY says:

      DON,T THEY EST DOGS THERE?

  24. sawnetbean says:

    There is no excuse for what he did and he deserved to get arrested. That said. There is no excuse for this woman to let her dog poop on his property and not clean it up. You have to be a good neighbor and considerate of others. It still doesn’t excuse what he did. He should have collected all her dog’s poop and thrown it back on her lawn.

    1. Bill says:

      The article makes no mention of her walking the dog on his property.

    2. Michael H. says:

      This article makes no mention of this woman not picking up after her dog. Some people are out for a fight. I pick up after my dog, but not everybody in my neighborhood does. I have one neighbor who confronts me often, despite the fact that I am holding a bag of poop in one hand and the pile he is trying to blame me for is nearly the size of my small dog.

  25. mrmikeknows says:

    Not justifying what he did. But how about people start walking their animals on their own property. To many people use other properties for their animal’s toilets. Just sayin’…

    1. JERRY says:

      NO DOUBT THAT WAS HIS COMPLAINT,UNFORTUNATELY, POLICE WON’T ENFORCE THE P/U AFTER YOUR DOG RULE.

  26. nathan says:

    Tough guy threatens a 54 yr old woman and abuses a dachshund. Have fun in the county lock-up showers tough guy.

  27. gen says:

    Put this pig in jail!

  28. Jenice says:

    How much lower can someone get to hurt an innocent animal….In my opinion, and this is coming from an animal lover who has many pets, should face the same charges as if he did this to a person. I hope he goes to jail for a long time and I also hope this poor woman sues him in civil court for pain and suffering and also for any vet expenses. Most of all, I hope the poor pup is ok.

  29. CountryMan says:

    You gotta be kidding me — arresting a man over a dog?

    1. Kevin says:

      I guess country man is from the hills of West Virginia…they also marry sisters and first cousins.

    2. Chris says:

      Yea….believe it or not civilized societies protect animals and punish thugs.

  30. Kevin says:

    This Cretin individual should have a leash tied around his neck and tossed into the air onto a bed of nails. Poor doxie!

  31. Larry says:

    This coward is seriial killer in training. Put a rope around him and toss him onto a highway, see how he likes it If he survives, put him behind bars..

  32. FOXYDOXY says:

    THE CREEP SHOULD BE WHIPPED 8 FEET IN THE AIR AND HAVE HIM LAND ON LARGE SHARDS OF BROKEN GLASS!!

  33. Nycl Poster says:

    The correct punishment in this case would be to cover this guy in blood and let him loose in a cage full of pit bulls and presa canarios.

    1. Greg Brady says:

      GOOD IDEA. I AGREE TOTALLY

    2. badman says:

      Most pits and presas wouldn’t hurt this guy, even if he were bathed i blood. they’re gentle toward people.

      I agree – KILL him for being such a cowardly (and if I see him on the street I’ll be happy to help him along to that end). but dogs don’t deserve a bad name.
