A 28-year old man was arrested on Monday for mercilessly beating a dog in a Harlem elevator.

Brian Freeman was allegedly caught on surveillance video from August 26th kicking and slapping the dog in the face inside an elevator at the Wagner Houses on East 120th Street.

Freeman has been charged with torturing and injuring an animal.

DNAinfo reports the pit bull was taken into Animal Care and Control custody and suffered no serious injuries.
