SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police are asking for the public's help in finding a mugger they say robbed a woman and killed her little dog when he grabbed the animal and threw it onto a city street.

Police say when the woman - who has not been named - pulled her car over Friday evening on a street in the city's Tenderloin district Friday so she could find her cellphone, a man came up to her and demanded money.

After giving the man her money, police say the mugger grabbed the woman's 12-year-old, 18-pound Pekingese named "Roxie" and hurled the dog onto the street.

The dog died after being taken to an emergency veterinary hospital.
