San Francisco Animal Care and Control officials have released surveillance footage of a man they believe is responsible for taking two cats from their owner and throwing them into the Bay last week.

The incident took place around 4:20 p.m. on Nov. 25 near Pier 14, where a woman was carrying her two adult felines in a carrier, San Francisco Animal Care and Control Capt. Le-Ellis Brown said.

The suspect grabbed the woman's belongings, including the cat carrier, and threw them into the Bay. Both cats died in the incident, Brown said.

The suspect is described as a white man standing about 6 feet tall. He is seen in one of the videos wearing a black sweatshirt and carrying a skateboard, while in the second video he is seen riding away on the skateboard while carrying a green backpack.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Officer Johnny Hilton at (415) 554-9400.
