CORONA, California -- A Corona Police K-9 can be seen on video leaping through a suspect's car window to apprehend him following a pursuit early Friday morning.
Fontana police responded to the 17300 block of Valley Boulevard in Fontana at about midnight regarding a stalking suspect and encountered the man, who led them on a pursuit when he did not stop his vehicle, according to KABC-TV.
The California Highway Patrol assisted in the pursuit and deployed spike strips as the suspect continued on the 10, 67 and 91 freeways.
CHP performed a PIT maneuver and nearly an hour later, the pursuit ended in Corona. The suspect, identified as 31-year-old Julio Vasquez, was uncooperative when the pursuit ended.
That's when Corona police officers shot out the suspect's side window with rubber pellets sent K-9 Duke jumping inside the vehicle to help take him down.
Vasquez was transported to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries after being bit by the dog and will be charged with felony stalking and felony evading. 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. Police were called when Vasquez went to her home before midnight.
Officials said that additional charges could be added after he allegedly punched the K-9.
