MV Man arrested for cruelty to animals


On Sunday, January 13, 2019, officers responded to a report of a subject who had killed his roommate’s dog at a residence in the 13000 block of Acacia Avenue. Upon arrival, officers indeed, located a deceased Chihuahua mix (named Rescue), and determined the dog had been killed by blunt force trauma to the head. The investigation revealed the assault on Rescue was captured on the home’s video surveillance cameras.

Li Haoming, a 24 year-old resident of Moreno Valley, was arrested at the scene and is being held on $10,000 bail at the Robert Presley Detention Center. 

The Moreno Valley Police Department takes crimes like these very seriously and has zero tolerance for animal cruelty. We encourage anyone with information about crimes against animals to report them to your local law enforcement agency or call 9-1-1 immediately.
