New Yorkers were left shocked as they watched the NYPD’s new robot police dog assist with an arrest at an apartment building on Monday.
The $75,000 machine, called Digidog, was accompanying police officers as they responded to an incident at 344 East 28th Street in Manhattan. It’s unclear what type of incident police responded to, but it did appear that they sent the robot dog in first.
In one clip, officers are seen arriving to the complex and entering the building with the robot as someone in the background says: ‘Oh that sh*t moves better than a dog. Never seen nothing like that in my life.’
