Let's try NOT to catch the criminals...

Three attackers use pit bull to rob man
From NBC12 News
Richmond police are looking for three attackers they say used a dog to rob a man.

It happened in broad daylight in the alley between 32nd and 33rd streets. Authorities say three men came up to the 34-year-old victim Friday, armed with nothing but a snarling pit bull.

The victim tried to run away but was quickly corned in the alley and then allegedly kicked and beaten in the face.

"A woman heard this commotion and someone yelling ‘get them off me, get them off me,’ and she approached and the suspects took off," said Kirsten Nelson with Richmond Police.

The thieves got away with cash and a few belongings. A witness describes the dog as a light brown pit bull.

Anyone with information, please call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 780-1000.

Do you notice anything odd about this article??? Hint: they sure have a description of the dog.... But it's not PC to give a description of the three criminals!
