SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A suspect in a break-in at a Cortez-area hotel Wednesday fought with police officers trying to arrest him, injuring three of them and a police dog.
San Diego police were investigating a report of a man forcing entry to a room at the lodge in the 1100 block of A Street when they spotted the suspect, who escaped by jumping out of a third-floor window and running off through the neighborhood just south of Balboa Park, SDPD Officer Joshua Hodge said.
Patrol personnel searched for the suspect for about 45 minutes before finding him about a dozen blocks northwest of the hotel, at Elm Street and Fifth Avenue in Park West.
When the officers tried to detain him, he violently resisted, biting two of them, causing a third to suffer a leg injury and leaving the police canine with a cut underneath one of its eyes.
The injured personnel and the suspect, whose name was not released, were treated at hospitals. The dog was taken to a veterinary clinic to get patched up, Hodge said.
