A man in El Paso made off with a French Bulldog puppy after he held up the puppy's owners at knifepoint.

The owners listed the puppy for sale on Craigslist, and agreed to meet the man to sell the puppy. Just before 8pm in an Arby's parking lot, the owners were waiting for their buyer to show up.

The suspect approached and asked to see the puppy, and when the owners asked to see the money, the suspect pulled a knife and threatened the couple.

He demanded the puppy, and the keys to the victim's truck, but the driver drove away. The suspect fled the scene with the puppy in an older model Chevrolet Tahoe.

Police said the puppy's owners described the suspect as a Hispanic male with a thin build, 25 to 30 years old, with shaved eyebrows. He was wearing a baseball cap, black jacket, and denim jeans.
