- Houston, Texas, USA -
On September 7, the individual in the pictures was seen on surveillance video inflicting a series of tortures on a defenseless cat.
This happened at a pool at the City Station Apartment Homes complex in 900 Block of Cypress Station Drive.
The subject is 22-year-old JAVONTE DARION ALEXANDER.
The video shows him repeatedly throwing the cat into the pool and repeatedly hitting the feline with a shoe and his hands as the furbaby tried to get out of the pool.
ALEXANDER goes on to hold the helpless cat underwater.
Finally, he left the pool holding the cat whose condition is unknown.
KHOU 11 reports that on September 25, ALEXANDER was arrested by the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (HSPCA). He was charged with felony animal cruelty by torture.
He is already out on bond!!!
If convicted, he could face between two to ten years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.
He is scheduled to make his next appearance in court November 7.
The Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office wrote on their Facebook page that although the video may be disturbing for some viewers, they still posted the link to it because they suspect that the accused could be responsible for additional cases of animal cruelty.
If anyone recognize him or has information, please call (832) – 927 – 1659.
