HOUSTON – Police are searching for a man accused of stabbing a Houston police K-9 over the weekend.
HPD homicide investigators were following the suspect inbound on Katy Freeway when they requested marked patrol units to stop the vehicle.
The suspect led officers on a 10-minute pursuit before crashing on the polo grounds. The suspect then fled into the woods and evaded the search for over 2 hours.
Deputies from precinct 5, and HCSO brought in drones to assist in the search as HPD Fox could not fly due to the cloud cover.
Police said a loaded firearm was recovered inside the front of the pickup.
According to police, the suspect is believed to have stolen the vehicle he was driving, and his father is reportedly missing.
