On Thursday November 16th around 9:30 p.m., Norwood officers responded to a stabbing in their town. The victim sustained a stab wound to the head before being able to flee from the suspect. Norwood Police Department requested K9 assistance to locate the suspect.
Trooper Robert Bohn of the K9 Unit responded to assist. On arrival, Trooper Bohn deployed K9 Ranger on a track from the suspect’s point last seen, with Trooper Paul Rego assisting. Ranger acquired the suspect’s scent in a backyard and began tracking. Ranger tracked out of the back yard and onto a side street. Ranger continued tracking over two more streets before Trooper Rego observed a subject matching the suspect’s description ahead of them.
As the team moved closer verbal commands were given and the individual complied with them. The suspect was then positively identified, the knife was located on his person and he was taken into custody without incident by Norwood officers.
