PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — A woman’s dog is recovering from a brutal attack in Philadelphia Friday night.
Kymirah Brown said her dog, aXurii, has had eye problems since a group of young people threw bleach at her while she was walking her baby last weekend.
“I can’t even walk my dog that safely,” she said.
Brown says a group of boys and girls then grabbed her wallet and AirPods.
The police assume that the five suspects are between 10 and 13 years old.
The incident happened around 7 p.m. last Saturday at the corner of Cheltenham Avenue and Torresdale Avenue in the Wissinoming neighborhood.
“You guys should just come forward because it’s not right,” Brown said.
While her dog recovers, she has a message for those in charge.
“You guys are really young, I’m only 20, but you didn’t even look 16. So you should really change something in your life. I forgive you all, so even if you come to me, I wouldn’t be mad at you. You should all get help and fix your behavior problems before they get worse,” Brown said.
Brown and her daughter weren’t hurt, but she’s worried about her dog. She says aXurii hasn’t eaten all day.
“It’s just really, really hard not to know — to know that she’s in pain and she’s suffering,” Brown said. “She was my daughter before my actual daughter, like she was there during my pregnancy.”
Brown said she had no cash in her wallet but that her peace of mind had been stolen from her.
Police say they are looking for those responsible.
Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 215-686-TIPS.
