Man Says He Was Attacked For Leaving Dogs In SUV

Updated: Thursday, July 31 2014, 02:40 PM CDT

(WSYX) An Ohio man says he was assaulted by a woman who thought he'd left his dogs in the car during a summer afternoon.

Columbus police says the 35-year-old man was approached by a woman who spotted his two best friends in the back seat of his SUV.

He says as the woman approached him in the lot, he tried to explain with no luck.

"She told me that people like me should not own dogs and that I deserve to die," the man says.

The victim says the woman must've heard four year old Dasha, and three year old Blazer in the back seat.

He says the dogs were in the car alone for thirty minutes in 70 degree temperatures.

As he got into his SUV, the man says the woman pounded on his windows.

That's not all.

"It ended up with her spitting in my face, and getting it in my mouth and all over the side of my car, she spit on me multiple times," he says.

The dogs' owner says Dasha and Blazer had plenty of water.

And though he says he didn't need to use it that day, his car is equipped with an electronic remote that lets him start the air conditioning to keep his best friends comfortable.

The man says the parking lot assault went on for five minutes. He filed a police report against the woman, but decided not to press charges.

Dasha and Blazer were shaken by the outburst but are okay.
