SOUTH East Metropoli­tan Re­sponse of­fi­cers charged a man in re­la­tion to an in­ci­dent on Jan­uary 27, in which a dog re­ceived se­ri­ous in­juries. Po­lice were called to a res­i­dence in Ra­son Place about 2am, with the caller stat­ing a man had al­legedly stabbed a dog. The dog had been taken to the safety of another nearby res­i­dence and po­lice at­tended both lo­ca­tions. A man was taken into cus­tody at the scene of the in­ci­dent and of­fi­cers at­tend­ing the se­cond lo­ca­tion found a dog with mul­ti­ple in­juries con­sis­tent with stab wounds. The at­tend­ing po­lice of­fi­cers took the in­jured dog to a vet so it could re­ceive emer­gency treat­ment. The dog was sta­bilised and the vet con­firmed the dog had re­ceived stab wound in­juries to its head, left shoul­der and left torso. A 39-year-old man from Red­cliffe has been charged with an­i­mal cru­elty, be­ing armed in a way that may cause fear and breach of bail. He was re­fused bail and ap­peared in the Perth Mag­is­trates Court on Jan­uary 27. He is next sched­uled to ap­pear in the same court on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 15.
