On Dec. 28, the victim pulled over on Leavenworth and McAllister streets to look for her cellphone that had fallen under her car seat when a man robbed her. He reportedly dug inside her pockets, grabbed money, then demanded more. Inside the car, the victim's dog, Roxy, barked at the man, who then told the woman he'd kill the dog.
And that he did.

The dog was rushed to the vet, but doctors were unable to save Roxy's life. Since the tragic incident, the victim, who does not want to be named, created a Facebook page dedicated to her dog, who she called her "best friend."
