Police have arrested a Bronx man who they say killed a cat by setting it on fire.

Investigators say surveillance video shows 31-year-old Ernesto Bailey pouring fluid on a cat laying on this sidewalk outside an apartment building on East 182nd Street.

They say Bailey then used a lighter to set the cat on fire before running off.

A picture of the cat was released, but is too graphic to show.

Police say Bailey lives in the apartment building.

He's charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, torture of an animal, reckless endangerment and arson. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
