SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (AP) — A puppy stolen at gunpoint from a 14-year-old San Francisco Bay Area boy has been found safe.
The San Francisco Chronicle says the boy was walking a 3-month-old German shepherd named Maya in San Leandro on Monday night when two men rolled up in a car.
The passenger got out and tried to snatch the dog but the boy resisted. The driver then got out with a gun.
The men took nothing but the dog and fled.
Lt. Robert McManus, a spokesman for the San Leandro Police Department, said Friday the puppy was found safe. He declined to provide details on her return.
