Los Angeles County officers arrested a man they believe could be a serious animal abuser after he allegedly tortured a cat to death.

Security camera footage shows a man investigators believe is Rogelio Diaz walking down a busy Lawndale street before stopping in front of a house and picking up a cat. The pet, Mimi, appeared to writhe in the man’s arms in an attempt to escape.

“I saw a man with gloves leaning down, so I told my daughter to get outside because I think someone took the cat,” Mimi’s owner said. “She thought the cat was going to lie, but she was too injured and died in my daughter’s arms.”

The mother asked to remain anonymous because she was afraid of Diaz.

“If he did it to a cat, he could do it to a child,” she said.

Due to the nature of the crime, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department believes Diaz is responsible for multiple animal abuse crimes in multiple cities in the South Bay.

“The cat was lying on the sidewalk and was in pain because he had tortured the cat for eleven minutes,”

Officers used the surveillance video to track and arrest Diaz.

He is being held without bond.

Deputies urged anyone with information about this case or other similar incidents to call Detective D. Ramirez at (323) 820-6761 or the South Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station at (323) 820-6700.
