Prospect Park has not been a very good place to take your dog lately, at least if you'd rather bring it home un-stabbed. That may have changed yesterday with the arrest of 42-year-old Flatbush resident Donnell Barden, the man accused of terrorizing other dog owners, using his pit bull to attack their pets before joining in himself. He reportedly used a metal cane to beat a number of dogs, and even stabbed one with what witnesses described as ice pick. In one instance, the Daily News reports, he could be heard shouting, "Eat it! Eat it!" as his dog attacked. Just in case you needed fodder for your nightmares.
A detail from the warning flyer. Objects may be more stabby than they appear
