Canine duty officer head butted during early morning arrest in Victoria

Suspect faces recommended charges of obstructing and assaulting peace officer

Victoria Police are recommending obstruction and assault charges after an Integrated Canine Service (ICS) officer was head butted during an arrest Tuesday morning.

Around 2 a.m. on September 14, VicPD was called to the parking lot of a multi-unit residence in the 3000 block of Douglas Street for a report of a man kicking the building and smashing bottles glass. Officers located a suspect a few blocks away, but the man escaped on his bicycle.

The ICS officer finally located and arrested a suspect in the 2900 block of Jutland Road after a foot chase and struggle.

According to a press release from VicPD, as officers searched the suspect, the individual butted the ICS officer and spat at another officer, while shouting that he was infected with the COVID-19 virus.

VicPD recommends charges of obstructing a peace officer and assaulting a peace officer.
