Law enforcement officers in Texas have arrested a 21-year-old woman for her alleged involvement in the theft of a $10,000 bulldog puppy, Fox News reported Wednesday.

The puppy was stolen Nov. 4 from the Bully Kamp pet store in Harris County, according to Fox News. Video of the theft went viral on social media after a pet store employee allegedly tried to stop the theft by jumping on the hood of the thieves’ car, KPRC reported.

The 21-year-old woman, identified as Royshana King, allegedly entered the Bully Kamp pet store with an unidentified male suspect Nov. 4, according to KPRC. The pair discussed financing options for purchasing the puppy with Alize James, a 21-year-old Bully Kamp employee, Fox News reported.

As James went to tend to a UPS delivery, the pair reportedly bolted with the bulldog in hand.

James pursued the thieves to the parking lot and demanded the pair to return the dog, KPRC reported. The car then attempted to pull away and James was flung onto the hood of the car where she remained for 10 minutes, clutching to the hood for her life as the car swerved, according to Fox News.

“I was hanging on for dear life,” James told KPRC in an interview.

When the car eventually came to a stop, the unidentified male assaulted James, threw her off the car, punched and scratched her in the face, according to Fox. The robbers were able to make off with the dog, according to the New York Post.

King has been charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and jailed on a $15,000 bond, the New York Post reported.

The unidentified male suspect remains at large and may still have the puppy in his custody, according to Fox News.
