A man estimated to be in his 30s used a golf club to rob a 42-year-old man of his dog on 14th and Harrison streets at around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, police report.

The suspect approached the dog owner on his bicycle and threatened to strike him with the golf club. Out of fear, the victim let go of his dog’s leash, and the suspect grabbed the dog and fled northbound on his bike on Harrison Street.

Police say the dog is a black and white pit bull mastiff mix with no tags or chips.
