A police dog is being hailed a hero after the K9 saved the life of a Mississippi sheriff’s deputy, ripping into the men authorities say dragged the officer into the woods Monday in an ambush attack.
A manhunt is under way Wednesday for the three suspects who beat Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Todd Frazier and slashed him with a box cutter, The Clarion-Ledger reported.
“They told him they were going to slit his throat, and they were dragging him toward the woods,” Chief Deputy Don Bass told the newspaper.
Frazier’s life was saved Monday by his K9 partner, Lucas, a black Belgian Malinois who police say chased the assailants down before they could slit Frazier’s throat, according to the newspaper.
Authorities said Frazier was able to activate the button that opens the door to his vehicle, releasing Lucas. Sheriff Ricky Adam told the newspaper the dog bit at least one, possibly two, of the suspects.
“We don’t know how many he got, we just know he had blood all over him,” Adam said. Read the story here.
~~~I have to say I am sick and tired to see our law enforcement at heightened risk because of liberalism and disrespectful and dangerous politics I hope they catch these guys and lock them up for good. Obama, Sharpton, Holder and so many more seem to actively be seeking harm to our police officers around the nation. Here is an update to the above story…..
Here’s a good-news update on a story we brought you.
Authorities in Mississippi say a police canine is expected to make a full recovery after he saved his partner from a brutal roadside ambush by three men.
The incident happened May 18 when Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Todd Frazier (picture above) got out of his squad car to check on a driver who was sitting in his vehicle at a rest stop.
Police believe it was a trap, because then two other men emerged from the woods. Deputy Frazier was beaten and slashed with a box cutter, reportedly telling him they were going to slit his throat.
Authorities believe the attackers intended to drag him into the woods and kill him, but Frazier was able to hit the remote control to open his squad car’s door.
That’s when Lucas sprang out of the car and jumped into the fray, biting at least one of the assailants and forcing them to flee.
Deputy Frazier suffered a cut on his head and other bodily injuries. Lucas tore a ligament, broke some teeth and sustained road rash.
A manhunt is continuing for the three suspects, described as black males. Police are on the lookout for a blue Lincoln Town Car.
They’re not sure whether the attack is linked to recent threats made to police officers by gangs.
