Police have taken a suspect into custody after receiving the report that a man sexually abused a Waterbury, Connecticut, resident's rescue dog.
Alice Woodruff of Waterbury told The Republican American that she held the man at gunpoint after catching him naked near her back porch performing a sexual act on her 12-year-old pit bull named Layla.
The man said he was involved with ISIS and that he was the anti-Christ, Woodruff told the Rep-Am, adding that he claimed to have given the dog Ebola. The incident happened around 10:30 a.m. Thursday.
Waterbury police are investigating the incident and have taken a 22-year-old suspect into custody. Police said the man, who lives nearby, was taken to St. Mary's Hospital in Waterbury for an evaluation.
"The suspect has not been charged yet, but he will be when he is released from the psychiatric unit," Deputy Chief Chris Corbett said.
Police have not released the man's name at this time.
