Police say a 31-year-old man faces charges after stabbing two dogs with a knife at his family's home outside Philadelphia.

The Daily Local News reports West Goshen township resident Gregory Thomas McMahon, 31, was charged with animal cruelty in connection with the April 18 incident. He was formally arraigned Monday, according to court records.

Police say they responded to the home after McMahon's brother called 911 to report Gregory McMahon had stabbed the family dogs with a kitchen knife.  Police say the suspect told them he “had to do it” and that God had made him.
