Man wanted in connection to video of dog getting kicked, attacked turns himself in: Anaheim PD

The man wanted in connection to last week's disturbing dog abuse case has turned himself in to authorities, according to the Anaheim Police Department.

Police said 33-year-old Albert Abad Jr. surrendered to police in Anaheim Thursday morning. An arrest warrant was issued for Abad after a video showing a man - later identified as Abad - kicking and repeatedly hitting a dog inside an Anaheim apartment complex went viral. 

According to authorities, Abad surrendered the dog - a black male Labradoodle named Steeler - to staff at Center-Sinai Animal Hospital Wednesday night. Steeler has since been placed with Orange County Animal Care where he will be examined by a veterinarian to determine his condition.

In last week's viral video, a man was spotted brutally attacking a dog in an Anaheim apartment hallway. He was seen kicking the dog and hitting it multiple times. Earlier in the week, Anaheim PD said the department knew of Abad but didn't arrest him at the time since officers are struggling to find the dog.
