Sun Valley man arrested after being accused of stabbing dogs at residence

A 45-year-old man was arrested for allegedly stabbing dogs that apparently had attacked him in the backyard of a home in Sun Valley, authorities said.

Los Angeles Police Department officers were called to the 9200 block of Cayuga Avenue in Sun Valley at around 3:40 p.m. on Wednesday to respond to a call for a possible home invasion robbery.

When officers arrived, they found 45-year-old Sun Valley resident Alexandro Flores, armed with a knife. Two dead dogs were found in the backyard.

Witnesses say Flores had been attacked by dogs on the property, then stabbed them. Officers say Flores was a relative of the homeowners and that he resided at that location. He was arrested on suspicion of felony animal cruelty. His bail has been set at $60,000.

After what the LAPD described as a “use-of-force” incident, Flores was taken into custody. Officials would not elaborate on the type of force used. Two dogs died at the scene and a third was transported to a local animal shelter in unknown condition.

Anyone with information regarding animal cruelty information can contact the Foothill Community Police Station at 818-756-8861.
