Police: Denzel Arrested For Killing Two Dogs

Milford – The Delaware State Police have arrested a Milford man after he allegedly stabbed two dogs inside his house, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier

Fournier said troopers were called to a residence in the 7000 block of North Union Church Road Wednesday, June 21, 2017 around 10:30 a.m., for a domestic issue occurring between Denzel L. Brown, 27, and his 34-year-old girlfriend. After troopers settled the verbal dispute between the two, the female secured her two adult pit bulls inside separate crates in the house and then left the residence, according to Fournier.

Denzel, who also resides at the house, was waiting outside for a ride, but went inside to retrieve some personal belongings. He suddenly emerged stating he had stabbed two pit bull dogs with a knife that belonged to his girlfriend after claiming the dogs were fighting, according to Fournier.
