LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California man has been charged with felony animal cruelty for an alleged sexual assault on his neighbor's dog that was caught on video.

The Daily Breeze reports 22-year-old Christopher Caceres pleaded not guilty Monday during his arraignment in a Long Beach court.

Caceres also faces a misdemeanor count of sexual assault on an animal for unlawfully having intercourse with the 80-pound Akita.

The dog's owner had set up a surveillance system because he suspected a prowler was targeting his house in San Pedro. The man had heard the dog shriek in the middle of the night on several occasions.

He called police Nov. 10 after discovering Caceres committing the alleged crime on video.

Caceres was held on $100,000 bail and ordered to return to court Nov. 25.
