A disturbing incident occurred in downtown Los Angeles as a woman was captured on video desperately clinging to the hood of a speeding car after thieves inside the vehicle had stolen her French Bulldog. The victim, Ali Zacharias had been enjoying lunch with her dog, Onyx at the Whole Foods on Grand Avenue and 8th Street around 2:30 p.m. on Jan 18. According to Zacharias, a stranger began calling for her dog, who was peacefully sitting at her feet underneath a table at the time, as reported a local news outlet.

Following the stranger's calls for the dog, the woman proceeded to grab Onyx's leash and started to walk away with him. Ali Zacharias initially believed it to be a simple mistake, unaware that the situation would escalate into a more serious incident.

“I thought it was a misunderstanding, so I said, ‘That’s my dog. Excuse me,’ and she wasn’t listening,” she added.
