A second clip shows the scenes leading up to the stabbing incident where the neighbour’s girlfriend tries to prevent the suspect from attacking the dog.

According to the dog’s owners, the suspect has acted aggressively towards the Rottweiler in the past and on this occasion he was complaining that it was on the street without a muzzle.
