Prescott Police are asking the public for help in trying to identify two suspects in an animal cruelty case. Police say the incident happened in the early morning hours of July 26th at Taylor Hicks Elementary School. A Prescott animal control supervisor was called to the parking lot of the baseball fields at the school and found two kittens who had passed away from blunt force trauma. Two other kittens were found, but were severely dehydrated, thin and covered in urine and feces. They were taken to a local animal hospital for treatment. Investigators say three or four males were making noise in the parking lot just after midnight on the north side of the campus. Video from the school shows the suspects, but the images are of poor quality. They appear to be white males, thin-to-medium build, with dark hair. Two of the suspects appear to be wearing white or light colored Nike shoes, another appears to be wearing dark colored low-cut Nike shoes. Police believe the suspects saw the cameras and tried to conceal their faces. Anyone with information into the incident, contact Prescott Police at (928) 777-1982 or Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232 or submit a tip online at yavapaisw.com.
