Charges: Felony CTA
Alleged: Gerardo Perez
A Chicago man has been arrested and charged with having sex with a pit bull at the city pound.
Gerardo Perez, 50, was charged with having sexual contact with an animal, a felony, and burglary.
Prosecutors say Perez was part of a group that took a tour of the Chicago Animal Care and Control facility at 2741 S. Western Ave on May 29th.
An employee says Perez broke off from the tour group and was spotted going into a restricted area. He was told to leave but returned a short time later.
The employee then found Perez in the restricted area, inside a case with the pit bull. Prosecutors say there were signs Perez had just had sexual contact with the dog. He reportedly made comments to employees that he had done so.
Police officers tracked down Perez at his home last Friday and arrested him.
He appeared in bond court Saturday. His bond was set at $80,000.
