Police are looking for the driver of a white pickup truck that's suspected of leaving an injured dog for dead in a North Hollywood alley, according to the LAPD.
On July 4, the vehicle was reportedly parked at Kittridge Street and Hamlin Street, one block east of Laurel Canyon Road.
A witness spotted a male suspect pulling a wounded dog by the collar off the truck's flatbed, according to an LAPD statement. The suspect was confronted by the witness and fled the area.
The dog, named Indy, suffered paw and claw injuries and police say the 2-year-old pup might have been tied and dragged from the back of the truck, CBS2 reports.
Shelter Transport Animal Rescue Team has cared for Indy since the incident. A $15,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
The unknown suspect is facing animal cruelty charges.
His vehicle is described as a possible late 1980s white Toyota Pick-up, with dark stripes on the side of the vehicle, a toolbox in the bed of the truck, large off-road tires, a sunroof, and small extra cab windows.
A surveillance photo of his vehicle is attached to this story.
