An elevator surveillance camera recorded a graphic video (below) of an unidentified man kicking a small dog repeatedly in The Wagner House, an East Harlem housing project, on Aug. 26.
The NYPD released the video hoping that someone will recognize the man, who will be charged with animal cruelty, reports the Daily Mail.
In the video, the man enters the housing project and gets into the elevator, where he begins abusing the dog.
He brutally kicks the little dog numerous times, slaps the canine and spits on the animal.
Anyone who may have information about the man in this video has been urged by police to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
