FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. A Cumberland County man has been arrested after his neighbor says she saw him having sex with her dog.

Authorities on Monday charged 33-year-old Ray Lynn Mitcham, Jr., of Linden, with a felony count of crime against nature involving a dog.

A sheriff's spokeswoman says Mitcham's next door neighbor went to speak with him Jan. 2 when she opened the door to his mobile home and saw him attacking her dog.

The mixed breed female dog was taken to a veterinarian who recovered a DNA sample. Authorities said Mitcham was arrested after his DNA profile matched the sample recovered from the dog.

Mitcham was taken to the county jail. It wasn't clear if he has a lawyer.
