A woman is upset after she says a stranger kicked her dog in the head as she walked him down Peachtree Street in midtown Atlanta.

Amy Goggins said the incident happened around 9:30 a.m. Sunday in front of the Fox Theatre. She told FOX 5 News the attack happened out of nowhere.

"My reaction was to start screaming and crying and he started threatening us. He said he would hurt me, and next time he saw me, he would rip the dog's head off," Goggins added.

She said her six-year-old Pomeranian mix suffered minor bruises but will be fine. She posted on social media about the ordeal so other dog owners will be on alert and call the police if the same thing happens to their pets.

"It has caused me to be more vigilant of where I walk and who I pass," Goggins stressed.
