Arrica Okenka, 30, says she can't live without her dog Ingrid. Ingrid
isn't just any old pet. She's a service dog and helps Okenka who has
cerebral palsy do everything. Monday they were on a Tarta bus headed to
the mall when a man tried to steal the dog.
"I wasn't letting go I had a death grip on her. He would have had to
drag me off the bus with her," said the victim Arrica Okenka.
The attempted theft was caught on the bus surveillance camera. The guy stands up and steps over the dog.
"I had my her leash wrapped around my hand and he grabbed the leash and it cut my hand," said Okenka.
When she didn't let go, the guy hopped off the bus.
"What were you going to do? Were you going to bate her to fight with
another dog were you going to just see if she can do all the things she
does for me for you" said the victim.
Arrica says she's had ingrid for four years. The video of the
incident appears to have gone viral. She hopes you'll share the video
and help police track down the man who tried to steal her bestfriend
"That stings a little bit just that thought that you were going to take
something from me that I need we need each other," said Okenka
