RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A Cumberland County man has been arrested after a neighbor says she saw him having sex with her friend's dog.

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

Debbie Tanna, spokeswoman for the county sheriff's office, says Mitcham's next-door neighbor went to speak with him Jan. 2. The neighbor, who is also Mitcham's landlord, told detectives she opened the door to his mobile home and saw him attacking the dog.

The mixed-breed female was taken to a veterinarian, who recovered a DNA sample. Tanna says Mitcham was arrested after his DNA profile matched the sample recovered from the dog.

Mitcham has been released on a $5,000 unsecured bond. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.
