The victim was walking the dog on the 2400 block of 11th Street N., in Courthouse, when her ex-boyfriend approached her and began an argument, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

The man then allegedly choked the victim and ran off with her Chihuahua. He was arrested when he tried to give the dog back.

“He came back to the scene to return the dog and was greeted by Arlington County police,” Sternbeck said.
