Paterson New Jersey
A cat rescuer and police want to honor a 14-year-old boy who stepped in as a group of children and tortured a cat in Paterson and then brought the cat home in an effort to save it.
The arrests came during two traffic stops and the search of two homes in Paterson last weekend.
Kenneth Santilla and another 13-year-old boy were walking along a street when the attack occurred Friday afternoon, police said. The boys then ran off in different directions.
