Last night, in Fontana, CA, police officers chased a 31-year-old man suspected of stalking and attempting to injure his estranged wife. It was an incredibly brave police dog named “Duke,” who ultimately put an end to the saga, with one amazing leap through the broken window of the suspect’s pickup truck.
ABC7 reports – Police shot rubber pellets and used a K-9 to take a stalking suspect into custody after the end of a chase in Corona.
Fontana police said they were called to the 17300 block of Valley Boulevard in Fontana at about midnight Friday regarding a stalking suspect and encountered the man, who led officers on a pursuit when he did not stop his vehicle.
Police say the suspect, 31-year-old Julio Vasquez, was uncooperative when the pursuit ended. Corona police shot out the suspect’s side window with rubber pellets and video showed a K-9 jumping inside the vehicle to help apprehend the suspect.
Vasquez was taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries after being bit by the dog, according to police.
He will be charged with felony stalking and felony evading after police say he violated a restraining order involving his estranged wife by showing up to her work earlier in the day and trying to hit her with his truck.
