NEW BRITAIN — A 32-year-old man considered a person of interest in the abuse of a female pit bull in Quincy, Mass., was found by New Britain police last week at local hotel, police said.

Radoslaw Czerkaswski appeared Monday in Superior Court in New Britain, where he waived extradition and a fugitive from justice charge was dropped, a court official said.

He was picked up by Quincy police and is being brought to Massachusetts to face a charge of misleading a police investigation.

Capt. John Dougan said Czerkaswski could face other charges. The pit bull, nicknamed “Puppy Doe,” was found in August near a playground.

She had severe burns, stabbed nose and tongue, broken bones and other forms of abuse. Her injuries were so severe animal control had to euthanize her, Dougan said.
