    There is new surveillance video of a suspect involved in an animal abuse case out of San Francisco.

    Police say they believe a man shown in the video above is the person who threw two cats into the San Francisco Bay on Monday.

    San Francisco animal control said they found the video of the suspect after asking several businesses in the area if they had surveillance video of the area where the attack happened.

    Witnesses said a man reportedly walked up to a woman who was carrying several items, including a cat carrier with two cats inside.

    He took all her items and threw them into the bay. One cat was found dead in the crate.

    The other was never found. Witnesses say they had to hold the woman back from jumping into the water on Pier 14.

    The suspect is described as homeless, 6'1", white, he has shoulder length hair that is either in dread locks or corn rolls. He is known to carry a large green army backpack and sleeps at the Hyatt at Justin Plaza.

    Anyone with information about the suspect or the case is asked to call animal care Officer Johnny Hilton at 415-554-9400.
