Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW) - Buffalo police are investigating a burglary that occurred at 79 Woodlawn Avenue late Tuesday into early Wednesday.

Police say the suspect entered the house and made off with thousands of dollars.

At some point during the burglary, police believe a pit bull-boxer mix may've attempted to thwart the invasion.

Authorities say the suspect stabbed the dog multiple times, killing the animal.

Police also say no one was home at the time. Anyone with information is asked to call or text the Confidential TipCALL Line at (716) 847-2255, or e-mail the department at www.bpdny.org.
