Police are searching for a missing Shi Tzu-Yorkie dog and the suspects who stole it during a domestic dispute in Maspeth.

Authorities said the incident occurred at approximately 7:55 p.m. on April 22 inside a residence on 56th Street near Arnold Avenue. A 21-year-old female victim told police that a 23-year-old man entered the home with two other women.

Law enforcement sources said the male suspect, who is an ex-boyfriend of the victim, used a spare key to enter the location.

Once inside, police said, the man pushed the female victim up against a wall, and one of the female suspects then pulled the victim’s hair and punched her in the chest and head. The second female suspect also punched the victim in the back of the head, according to police.

Sources familiar with the investigation said that the woman who pulled the victim’s hair and punched her is the man’s mother. The other female suspect is the male suspect’s current girlfriend.

The trio took the victim’s Shi Tzu-Yorkie, named “Rizzo,” with them as they fled in an unknown direction, authorities said. The male suspect had previously given the dog to the victim as a gift, sources noted.

The 104th Precinct Detective Squad is investigating the incident as a robbery; no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to contact the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-386-2723 or Detective Borough Queens North 718-520-9200. All calls are kept confidential.
