New York City cops are looking for a man seen in a surveillance video severely beating a dog inside a Harlem elevator.

The incident took place inside the Wagner Houses at 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 26th. According to Gothamist, the suspect "whose hair was in corn rows, was wearing a red T-shirt and baseball cap."

Anyone with any information regarding the beating is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS. All Crime Stoppers calls are kept confidential.

Sadly, this story is quite familiar. Another Wagner Houses surveillance video last year caught dog owner Irving Sanchez mercilessly kicking his own pet pooch inside an elevator. Sanchez was charged with aggravated animal cruelty.

And in 2010, three other such elevator dog beatings were caught on camera inside the Grant Houses, also in Harlem.
