A Saugus man was arrested Saturday morning after a neighbor saw him beating his Pit Bull Terrier repeatedly with a shovel, officials said.

According to Lt. Tom Bryski of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station, Matthew Lantzy, 30, was taken into custody after his neighbor called the station to report that Lantzy used a shovel to beat the head of his dog.

Bryski said Lantzy resides on the 28000 block of Natalie Lane in Saugus, and was charged with felony cruelty to animals and held at the sheriff's station in lieu of $20,000 bail.

The dog was injured but survived, and was transported to an animal shelter in Saugus, according to the report.

Lantzy is scheduled to appear in court on June 11 for his arraignment.
