One of the latest car break-ins in San Francisco involved the death of a dog over the weekend, police said.

A man broke into a car on the seventh floor of a parking garage, police said.

The man then took the 4-year-old Chihuahua that was in the car, walked to the edge of the garage, and hurled the dog to its death.

Dashcam footage revealed the chilling scene to investigators, reported WMUR.

Police recognized the perpetrator as Wakeen Best, who had previous run-ins with authorities.

He was arrested on suspicion of felony burglary, animal cruelty, grand theft, possession of stolen property, carrying a concealed weapon, vandalism, and probation violation.

The parking garage, Sutter-Stockton Garage is located in Union Square.

Police haven’t released a picture of Best because they think he might be tied to other crimes, reported NBC.

“It is kind of annoying and kind of scary to have something so dangerous present in the area,” Sean Simmons, a regular customer at the garage, told the broadcaster.

Police found a trail of blood leading from the vehicle to the edge of the garage, then found the dashcam footage.
