20-Year-Old Man Stabbed By Thief Trying To Steal His French Bulldog
A dog owner has been stabbed by a thief intent on stealing his pet.
In fact, Vinnie is worth £2,500 ($3,200). Well, he's worth more than that to the people who own him.
It's that monetary worth that drives people to try to steal other people's pets.
Gardener Aaron, from Leeds, was walking down an alleyway with the dog when a man approached him and asked him how old Vinnie was.
The 20-year-old told him, to which the man said: "Great, that's nice - now give me your f***ing dog."
Straight to the point, at least.
Aaron said: "I carried on walking and he crept up behind me and punched me in the face. I hit him back and thought he'd punched me in the ribs - but he'd stabbed me.
"I picked up my dog and went to my mate's.
"It was only when he saw the hole in my jumper I realised I had been stabbed."
He continued: "It was bleeding quite badly. I had to hold the wound together. I had to get a taxi to hospital and get stitches.
"I have had anxiety afterwards. Now it's really bad. I have to be in the house by 4pm with all the doors locked and the lights off. I won't even answer the phone.
"I feel like I am in jail."
As for his attacker, Aaron added: "The man who attacked me sounded in his mid-20s. He was about 5ft 10ins or 11ins, and stocky build.
"He was dressed all in black. His face was covered up by his jumper so I could just see his eyes."
Furthermore, Aaron still has no idea what he was actually attacked with.
He said: "The doctors said I had definitely been stabbed. The police said it looked like a pocket knife wound.
"My mum has to park outside and come to the door so I can walk the dog in front of the flat on the grass."
