A man is behind bars after he broke into an apartment and stepped on a kitten during the burglary.
Daniel Garcia, Jr. allegedly broke into an apartment located on the 3300 block of McAllen Road in Brownsville.
According to the Brownsville Police Department, a dead kitten was found at the apartment and a television was missing.
The victim of the theft knew Garcia, but he did not have permission to be inside the residence.
Brownsville police noticed the door was forced open, and that is when Garcia allegedly stepped on the kitten.
Garcia was arrested for the burglary and was also arrested on a charge of animal cruelty.
His bond is currently pending at this time.
