Florida Teen Assaults Pregnant Woman And Her Dogs
Wow. What the hell was this kid thinking??
Police are looking for a teenager they say choked a pregnant woman and injured her puppy so badly it had to be euthanized. Police this afternoon are looking for Jarred Scott Poole, 17, on a warrant charging aggravated battery on a pregnant person and felony animal cruelty.
According to a report released this morning, on Sunday Poole was arguing with Jasmine Adams, 23, who is six to seven months pregnant. He then grabbed her Chihuahua puppy and drop kicked it onto North Ridgewood Avenue, near Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard, police said. Then, he grabbed a second dog of Adams, a pit bull, and threw it into traffic, according to the report.
The pit bull returned to a porch at 318 N. Ridgewood and Adams retrieved the Chihuahua puppy and put it on the porch. Poole then grabbed the Chihuahua again and threw it into the median of North Ridgewood. The pit bull ran after the puppy and was hit by a truck that didn’t stop. The pit bull then ran away.
After abusing the puppies, police say Poole pinned Adams against a wall and choked her, according to the report. The Chihuahua, 2 months old, had a large bump on its head and had to be euthanized. The pit bull was not found.
Poole is described as black, 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds. His last known address is his father’s home on Ribault Ave. Police said Poole rides a skateboard and frequents the Boardwalk, a Burger King and the Votran transfer station on Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard.
