Pittie Rescues!

A True Nanny Dog to the Rescue!

 By: N Gilbert

One Indianapolis family had a lot to be thankful for yesterday after their blue pit bull took on the role of hero during a terrifying home invasion.
WISHTV sat down with married couple Nayeli Garzon-Jimenez and Adolfo Angeles-Morales, who explained how their family pet was able to successfully block armed robbers from escaping their home with their 3-month-old daughter.
Two armed robbers -- a man and a woman -- broke into the couple's home demanding money. Angeles-Morales was at work at the time but on the phone with his wife during the start of the invasion. He recounted the details for WISHTV, as his wife does not speak English.
"The guy say, 'Give me the money or we take the baby,'" Angeles-Morales explained.
When Garzon told them she didn't have any money, the woman began to seize the baby and a brief scuffle broke out before the male robber clocked Garzon on the forehead with his pistol, forcing her to release her child. The woman then attempted to escape through the back door with the baby before being accosted by the family's pit bull.
"She try to run away through the back door, but one of the doggies - he didn't let her go through the back door," said Angeles-Morales.
The woman then ran back toward the front door, releasing the baby to Garzon on the way. Both robbers left empty-handed and Garzon and her child were treated at Wishard Hospital. The baby was unharmed, while Garzon suffered a cut on her forehead and some bruising.
Despite the story's happy ending, some readers of the report on WISHTV took issue with the article due to the fact that the family's pit bull was only referred to as a "dog."
"Seriously, is it so hard to give credit to the fact that the dog is a PIT BULL?" wrote Amber Yorlano. "He's a heroic dog that is credit to the breed."
"Why didn't they specify that it was a pit bull?" added Ja Santana. "Had it been a negative story that would have been the first thing they mentioned."
Follow-ups on the story from and Opposing Views both referred to the dog as a pit bull.
Indianapolis police are currently looking for a suspect described as an African-American male, 6-foot-2, 35 years old, heavyset with acne scars, a close-cut beard and light skin. He is considered to be armed and dangerous.
The female suspect has been described as being an African-American in her mid-20s, 5-foot-10, heavyset with braided ponytail and piercings on her lip and eyebrow.
Those with any information should call IMPD at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
