COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA (KPTM) - Gerardo Martinez, 30, of Council Bluffs, Iowa, was arrested Wednesday morning for a crime that many are calling disturbing.

Council Bluffs Police believe Martinez killed a cat by throwing it out of a 7th-floor window.

Police said witness called 911 after they saw Martinez naked on West Broadway and saw him throw a cat out of an apartment window near 4th Street and Broadway.

When Police arrived at around 7:30 AM Wednesday, they said Martinez was naked, admitted to using methamphetamine and said he performed a sex act on the cat before throwing it to its death.

Police said the cat was thrown out the window with other pornographic materials.

Martinez changed his mind about an interview with FOX 42 News Thursday afternoon after talking with his attorney. He is being held in the Pottawattamie County Jail with a 10-thousand dollar bond.
