Elgin police are looking for a man accused of animal cruelty.

Gregory R. Griffin, 38, faces two misdemeanor charges after witnesses told police they saw him kicking his dog while its head was stuck in a door.

The dog had fractures to both hind legs and needed surgery to repair the damage.

The six-month-old dog was named “Liberty” by animal control officers.

After about eight weeks of recuperation, “Liberty” will be placed for adoption by the Golf Rose Animal Shelter in Schaumburg.
