UPDATE: Las Vegas performer Criss Angel is now offering a reward for the arrest of the two men who abused 2 dogs during a break-in near Charleston Boulevard and Fort Apache. The woman who owns the dog works for the performer.

Chris Kael, of the band Five Finger Death Punch, also said he'll throw in tickets to any of their shows and a meet-and-greet for the person and their family who provides info that leads to an arrest in the case.

ORIGINAL STORY

It's a video that's disturbing to watch -- dogs kicked and thrown during a break-in Sunday night near Charleston Boulevard and Fort Apache.

Tatiana Malyarov says her family was out of house around 9 p.m. Sunday when two people broke in through the back door, kicked her dog, and then rummaged through the home, stealing thousands in electronics and jewelry.

"It's scary, it just turns your stomach," she says.

Cameras captured the crooks kicking one of her dogs, Mylo, who can be heard squealing in pain, then using a rug to wrap the dogs up and throw them into the garage.

Tatiana says she's shared the video on social media, and she's grateful her neighbors have been spreading the word, hoping to get the suspects caught.

"It's just incredible to feel the love of our community, it really is," she says.

In the meantime, Tatiana says in addition to her cameras, she's also adding an additional layer of security to her home by installing an ADT alarm system.
