A black man in Roseville, Michigan is recovering from multiple injuries after what appeared to be a gang of white men ordered a dog to attack him last Wednesday.
According to WXYZ, 32-year-old William Lafave admitted to fighting the 20-year-old victim. The fight escalated when Lafave’s stepson released a dog to attack the victim who they alleged had a knife.
“That’s why the dog was let go and the dog did his job to make sure he protected me from getting stabbed by the individual,” Lafave told the station.
The victim, who was not named, insisted to WXYZ that he never had any type of weapon.
Cell phone video shows four white people with a dog on the street converging on a black man who is walking down the sidewalk.
Lafave can be seen throwing the first punch at the black man before another white person brings the dog into the fight. The dog repeatedly bites the victim, forcing him to the ground and into the street.
The group of white people then take over the attack on the victim, who is kicked multiple times and hit with a trashcan.
Video of the incident went viral over the weekend after activists shared it on social media.
Roseville police said that their investigation is continuing. There are no reports of charges being filed.

‘You need to go’: White woman screaming about abortion gets pulled away by cops for heckling black speaker
Conservative activist Kaitlin Bennett was escorted away by police after she tried to interrupt a liberal speaker.
The incident, which was caught on video, appeared to take place in Houston prior to last week's Democratic presidential debate. The video was later posted online by The Blaze's Elijah Schaffer, who was sympathetic to the right-wing heckler.
The video shows a speaker, who is black, talking about systemic racism.
"They have found ways to cage our babies, separate families, mistreat and abuse us," the woman says before she was interrupted by Bennett.
"What about abortion?" Bennett exclaims.

Kellyanne Conway: It’s unconstitutional for Democrats to ’embarrass this president’ with impeachment
White House aide Kellyanne Conway on Sunday insisted that Democrats do not have a "constitutional basis" to embarrass President Donald Trump by conducting an impeachment inquiry.
Conway made the remarks while speaking to FOX News Sunday guest host Bill Hemmer.
"Complete nonsense," she said when asked about the impeachment proceedings. "They need to get a messaging meeting and they need to read the constitution of the Democratic Party."
"Americans, the Congress, they work for you," Conway continued, talking over the FOX host. "And they're wasting your money and your time trying to impeach a president where there are no high crimes and misdemeanors."
