Mitchell Marsicano of Long Beach was arraigned Friday on burglary and sexual misconduct charges. Bail was set at $10,000 cash. His attorney declined to comment.

Nassau County prosecutors say Marsicano illegally entered an apartment in the house he owned and sexually assaulted the dog, a 23-pound Japanese breed named Snowball. They said the tenants called authorities after witnessing the latest assault on Thursday.

The dog was examined at a nearby animal hospital and showed signs of trauma.

Prosecutors said the investigation was ongoing and additional charges were possible.
