A man who allegedly threatened a family with bear spray and then kicked their dog has been arrested.

Brandon police busted a suspect Monday (Oct 7) in connection with the incident on September 24th.

Police say a family was playing with their dog on 26th Street North, when a man they didn't know approached, made threats and hurt their dog. 

The family managed to get the whole thing on video.

A 21-year-old man faces weapons and cruelty to animals charges and is to appear in court in December.

Police say the suspect’s intoxication level at the time of the incident is believed to have played a factor in his actions.
