Police: Suspects Stole Puppies, Assaulted Woman

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. (CBS13) — Police are searching for two men who allegedly assaulted a woman and stole newborn puppies at her Rancho Cordova home.

The victim posted an classified ad Thursday on eBay to sell some of her nine-week-old purebred Yorkshire Terrier puppies, and said she received a phone call from a woman who claimed she was interested in buying one of the dogs.

The breeder gave the caller her address, and about a half hour later, she spotted two men trying to break into her home.

“I said, ‘What are you guys doing?’” the woman said. “They just kind of looked at me.”

The suspects allegedly attacked her and dragged her into her garage, knocking her to the ground. One of the suspects kept her pinned and warned her not to scream while the other suspect ran inside to steal three of her puppies.

“The one guy was just mauling my face, tore my glasses off,” the victim said. “They were saying, ‘We just want your puppies.’ And I just fell apart.”

The woman suffered minor injuries in the incident.

The men have only been described as light-skinned black male adults, approximately 6 feet tall; one suspect wore a gray hooded sweatshirt and the second wore a white sweatshirt.

    How rare Skinny Black Guy’s breaking in to a home & attacking a unarmed female.
    How much work does it take to earn enough money to buy a dog ?
    They give them away at the shelter if your not a moron !

    They probably stole them in order to sell them. They are expensive purebreds. They certainly didn’t take them because they love puppies and just HAD to have 3! Therefore a trip to the pound wouldn’t have done them any good.

      Cameron park girl ,

    These particular dogs are purebred and are about $750 or higher each! The poor lady trusted people. She comes from a time when people did that. But now, if you sell something, go to a real public place. But selling puppies takes selling from a car if she didn’t want to give her address. But it’s not the lady’s fault for trusting. To make someone at fault for trusting….. tells a whole lot about this world. I hope the lady will be alright. Seems that there was another case in the last month about stealing the same kind of puppies. They got those back though.
