Man ‘Acting Like a Bull’ Stabs San Diego K9
A man described by witnesses as “acting like a bull” in the middle of a street in North Park pulled out a knife and stabbed a K9 during a bizarre encounter with police Tuesday night.
The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) said officers were called to 30th Street and Lincoln Avenue at around 11:40 p.m. to investigate reports of the man behaving oddly. SDPD Officer Billy Hernandez said the suspect was running between cars in the middle of the street, per witnesses.
When officers approached the man, he pulled out a knife and ran away. The SDPD officers, along with Max, a K9 officer, gave chase as the man ran southbound on Grim Avenue.
Max was released and ran toward the suspect; the police dog bit the man. Police said the suspect then stabbed the K9 twice with his knife.
The suspect fled again where police arrested him and arrested him. His name has not been released.
K9 Max rushed to a veterinary hospital and treated for his wounds. Max is expected to make a full recovery.
