Cops Sic K-9 on Infant Daughter of a Man they Mistook for a Suspect

On January 30, 2015, a health food store in Henderson called the police after a disgruntled customer, attempting to return some protein powder, allegedly threatened to rob them. The store described the suspect to police as a black male wearing a black and tan t-shirt who left in an SUV.

As police responded to the call, they quickly stopped the first person they saw, who happened to be Arturo Arenas-Alvarez. Arenas-Alvarez had just pulled up in the shopping center to do some shopping when police drew their weapons and demanded he put his hands in the air and step toward them.

Arenas-Alvarez did not appear to understand why multiple armed men were pointing their guns at him, so one officer asked him in Spanish to approach the vehicle.

Before Arenas-Alvarez makes it all the way to the vehicle, officers realized they had the wrong guy.

“That’s not him, dude. That’s not a black man in a black shirt,” one officer said to another.

However, they continued the detainment.

Officers begin to assure Arenas-Alvarez that he will be fine. “They thought that you were involved in a robbery. You don’t look like the person, so it’s OK now, OK?” one officer said. However, nothing could have been further from the truth.

As officers were telling Arenas-Alvarez that he’ll be okay, Sgt. James Mitchell can be heard on the radio telling the officers, “Stand by a couple of minutes. K9-1 is about two minutes out.”

During the display of gross incompetence of mistaking Arenas-Alvarez for a black man in a black shirt, Arenas-Alvarez’s 17-month-old daughter, Ayleen was strapped into her car seat in the SUV.

Before Arenas-Alvarez could communicate to the officers that his infant daughter was in the car, the “two minutes” had passed and Sgt. Mitchell arrived with his Belgian Malinois. Almost as soon as he exited the vehicle, Mithcell released the K-9 into the SUV of an entirely innocent man and his daughter.

“My baby,” Arturo Arenas-Alvarez can be heard pleading with officers in broken English. “I’ve got my baby.”

An officer then yelled out, “There’s an infant in that car! There’s an infant in that car!”

But it was too late. By the time the cops realized that their immediate escalation to violence was unnecessary – the damage had been done.

Ayleen’s blood curdling and heart-wrenching screams of agony can be heard on the dashcam. The 4-year-old dog, Doerak, was ripping into the baby’s flesh. By the time the dog let go of the infant, her right arm had been mauled. She was left with nine puncture wounds and abrasions.

After the incident, Mitchell and Doerak were taken off the street as a routine practice, similar to that of officer-involved shootings. However, since then, Doerak and Mitchell have been released back to regular duty.

That’s probably too much even for American police. On the video you can clearly see Hispanic man in a white clothing - not a black man wearing black. Are they crazy or what? The moment when they realized their mistake all they left to do is release the man and back to their job. They knew that Arenaz-Alvarez is not a criminal - why did they release the dog into SUV? I’m speechless. I don’t think it’s possible to heal the moral wounds of Ayleen, she is just a little baby. That’s why cops should never wonder why people hate them.

I said “Tack så mycket”(thanks a lot) after the pic and he responded “varsågod” (you’re welcome). He was nice and took time to autograph pics for fans and take pictures with them :). So happy.”

Knocking lightly on the door to make sure Ayleen knew he was entering, he slowly opened the door to the sleeping, as expected, princess. Setting her usual morning tea on her bedside table he moved around the room, picking up and folding her clothes into a dirty and a clean pile. The guard and servant looked over at the sleeping princess and couldn’t help but think about their status difference. Both the same age yet he was serving her. Not that he didn’t mind; he nursed a long lasting soft spot for his master but kept that a secret. Surely no-one of her status would consider him… “Princess…? It’s time to get dressed, your father demands your presence most insistently.”


The night before had been more than a little tiring, moving Ayleen’s boxes of belongings proved to be quite the task. Though this was good, because that meant she was sleeping soundly in their bed when morning came. He silently made his way out of the bedroom and through into the kitchen.

There, he made a great effort to make a full blown breakfast for her to eat in bed. James was pleasantly surprised when everything went to plan. He stuck the plate of breakfast on a tray, along with some orange juice. Creaking the bedroom door open, he grinned. “Good morning, sleeping beauty~!” He chirped.


“ It really has been forever since I went Ice skating… “, Mike muttered quietly while lacing up his skates. It actually has been almost a year. mainly because Victor never bothered to accompany him. 

“ As if anyone held you back, Mike. Could’ve asked your boyfriend sooner to came iceskating with you instead of waiting that your brother asks for that. “ Victors hand reached for Ayleens, and he gave her a gentle smile. “ Ready to go on the ice? “

Hace tiempo que no habría Tumblr, pero hoy en la mañana estaba tipo “Ayleen, sería buena idea si abres tu cuenta otra vez y publicas otros de tus aburridos y largos textos” y es así como estoy aquí, para joderlos, ya saben.

Bueno, nada interesante ahí arriba, vamos al grano. Ayer estaba viendo algunos videos en Youtube y casualmente me salió en las recomendaciones una de mis canciones antiguas favoritas de Lana, Young and beautiful. Esta canción me hace sentir relajada, única y bella. Es una adicción esta canción, pero bueno, ¿cómo les hace sentir esta canción a ustedes?
