A Cumberland County man has been arrested after his neighbor says she saw him having sex with her dog.
Authorities on Monday charged 33-year-old Ray Lynn Mitcham, Jr., of Linden, with a felony count of crime against nature involving a dog.
A sheriff's spokeswoman says Mitcham's next door neighbor went to speak with him Jan. 2 when she opened the door to his mobile home and saw him attacking her dog.
The mixed breed female dog was taken to a veterinarian who recovered a DNA sample. Mitcham was arrested after his DNA profile matched the sample recovered from the dog.
Mitcham was taken to the county jail. It wasn't clear if he has a lawyer.
