DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Delray Beach resident Rasheen Norman remains in the Palm Beach County Jail Tuesday afternoon following his late night arrest by the Delray Beach Police Department.

An affidavit of probable cause reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com states that Norman admitted to hitting a dog in his home multiple times with a stick “5 or 6 times,” causing abrasions and lacerations to the dog, and then attacking a female in his home who asked him why he hit the dog in the first place. That woman allegedly was out at the time of the incident, but called police after discovering blood when she got home.

Wrote police: ”I observed a fresh laceration on the side of the dog’s body, on top of his head, and a swollen right eye. (The woman) stated when left the house earlier this morning, the dog was not injured in this way. The stick collected by officers appeared to have dried blood on one end.”

Rasheen Norman apparently told police that the dog nipped at him causing him to the attack the dog, but admitted that the dog did not ”latch on.”

Police charged Rasheen Norman with domestic violence as well as cruel to animals. He is being held without bond. Norman’s home is listed as the 300 block of NW 5th Avenue in Delray Beach.
