At Burger King, the officer and the suspect got into an altercation and the officer said he was punched in the rib cage and the suspect got away.

K-9 officers were called in to track the suspect and they found him at the Mercury Apartments nearby.

Police quickly figured out the suspect broke into a home and began assaulting the tenant.

That victim was able to run outside as the K-9's and their handlers got to the neighborhood.

Police made entry into the home where the suspect allegedly started punching K-9 Officer Haggard.

According to the report, the K-9 officer bit the suspect –at which point he surrendered.

Police identified the suspect as Terrance Mitchell. He's now facing aggravated burglary charges.
