According to police records, a team was immediately dispatched to the site of the crime after the operations room received the report. During interrogation, the victim told the police that he had posted an advertisement on social media to sell his dog.

The accused responded to the ad and contacted the victim expressing his interest in buying the dog, and requested to check the animal before buying it.

They agreed to meet at the victim’s house, the records showed.

In his testimony, the victim added that the accused arrived at his home and saw the dog, but before the sale was completed, his daughter pleaded against selling the dog.

During their fight, he cut the victim's palm.
