Dognappers steal puppy at gunpoint in North Hollywood, police say

Police are looking for two men who allegedly stole a French bulldog from a family at gunpoint last week in North Hollywood.

The incident occurred around 4:20 p.m. on March 20, when two men followed a victim out of a store and into a parking lot near the intersection of Victory Boulevard and Vineland Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a news release.

The victim was carrying a 5-month-old puppy with him back to his car when one of the men brandished a gun and took the dog away from him, police said.

The suspects then fled the scene by foot with the French bulldog, according to the LAPD.
