The suspect, 21-year-old Sadie Slater, was identified by the LAPD after officers worked through the night to 'locate and arrest the suspect wanted for this crime,' wrote the department on X.
Ali Zacharias, the pup called Onyx's owner, said the suspect walked toward her and her one-year-old pup before she snatched the dog from underneath Zacharias' chair and began moving away.
Zacharias said she initially thought the situation was a misunderstanding, not believing anyone would attempt to steal Onyx. Shortly thereafter, Zacharias wound up on the hood of the suspects' car attempting to reclaim her pup.
The suspects drove their getaway vehicle down several blocks before making a turn that threw Zacharias from the hood - she was not severely injured.
Of the video showing Zacharias on the hood, LAPD Officer Jader Chaves said: 'It was very shocking to see, but at the same time it was very helpful in identifying the vehicle and the license plate and the occupants.'
Zacharias said she was 'screaming with joy' when they found out a suspect had been arrested, but are 'waiting for the next piece of news that Onyx is safe and in custody.'
