Youngstown man charged with animal cruelty

Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A Youngstown man was charged with animal cruelty after he allegedly abused a kitten on Indianola Avenue. 

Police arrested Stephen Hogan, 24, in connection with the abuse as well as a related case after a woman reported that someone had smashed the windows of her car and slashed the tires.

She told police she believed Hogan was responsible because he lived there with her and her daughter. The woman also said Hogan had been acting strangely during the day before the vandalism occurred then disappeared after the incident. 

While investigating that incident, police responded to a call on Glenwood Ave. Police say a man matching Hogan's description had flagged down the officer and asked the officer to arrest him. 

According to police reports, Hogan was transported back to Indianola Avenue where witnesses identified him as the same man that had thrown a kitten into the street repeatedly.

Humane officers found an injured kitten in the vandalized car, and said it had probably suffered brain damage as a result of the injuries. 

Hogan was arrested for criminal damaging and injuring animals. Police also report that humane officers removed three other cats from the residence. Hogan was arraigned on Friday and released on bond. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 1.
