KISSIMMEE, Fla. — A Vietnam veteran had his service dog stolen Sunday during an altercation with a woman, Osceola deputies said.
Deputies said the 67-year-old Joseph Hanson who has post-traumatic stress disorder was at Old Town in Kissimmee with his two Pomeranian service dogs.
Authorities said a woman got into an altercation with the veteran and another woman came behind them and unleashed one of the dogs, named Kira.
Hanson told WESH 2 News a woman confronted him yelling and cursing.
"During that time, that's when the other lady, who I didn't even know was there, until I saw (surveillance) video, that's when she came up and grabbed the dog." Hanson said.
