Pet shop owner says suspects threw stolen guinea pig at him

A Kentucky pet store owner says two suspects accused of trying to steal live guinea pigs from his shop threw one of the animals at him during their escape

One suspect rolled down a window and tossed a four-month-old guinea pig named Lucky onto the concrete. The other ran over Gonyaw’s foot with the car. He says he suffered bruising.

Lucky wasn’t injured. The other guinea pig remains missing.

Jail records show Danville police charged the women with shoplifting, robbery and animal cruelty. It’s unclear whether they have lawyers.
