Angelique told VVNG that Paul was on his way home with his female Border collie husky named “Bandit” who is now missing.

During the ongoing investigation, an Animal Control Officer responded to the scene and with the help of a deputy attempted to capture the small black/brown dog with a white chest. Unfortunately, the dog escaped from the harness and ran towards the parking lot of the First Assembly of God.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Victorville Police Department.

UPDATE AT 3:00 PM — Angelique was informed the dog was hit by a vehicle and is at Victor Valley Animal Hospital receiving treatment for some abrasions.
