From the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office:

A Mandeville-area man is facing an animal cruelty charge after he beat and stabbed a neighborhood dog.


At approximately 5:45 p.m. Sunday (April 14), St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence on America Street near Mandeville in reference to a man beating a dog.


Deputies learned that a boy was out selling candy in the neighborhood when a small dog that was properly restrained on a porch at the residence on America Street bit him, causing a minor injury.


After being bitten, the boy told a relative, Matthew Forstall, 28, of Mandeville, about the incident.


Forstall then went to the residence and beat and stabbed the dog with a fishing gaff, causing serious injuries to the dog.


Forstall was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail Sunday evening on one count of L.R.S. 14:102.1B Aggravated Cruelty to Animals.
