(Orlando Sentinel) A known street gang member was arrested Wednesday on robbery and attempted murder charges after snatching cash from a disabled man and pushing him and his wheelchair into oncoming traffic on U.S. Highway 192, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office said.

Jose Mojica de la Rosa survived the attack uninjured on Saturday evening but his 9-month-old Chihuahua, Lola, broke a leg when she was crushed beneath the over-turned wheelchair, according to interviews Wednesday afternoon.

“He pushed me,” Mojica de la Rosa said of suspect Sonny Abreu, whom witnesses identified as the attacker, according to the arrest report.
