A group of thugs attacked a police officer and brutally stabbed him, the officer who fortunately managed a group of the two K-9 units was able to ask for help from his friend, who acted magnificently.
A group of thugs pounced on a police officer and he was brutally stabbed
Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Todd Frazier was traveling along a deserted roadway during his night shift when he came upon a vehicle parked near an area in Pearlington, Mississippi.
Realizing that a man was alone inside the parked car, sitting along the tree-lined road with his lights off, Frazier decided to pull over to make sure the driver didn’t need help.
As Frazier approached the car alone, he heard a rustling in the nearby woods.
Before he knew what awaited him, the officer was attacked by three men: the one in the car and two, who had come out of the woods, to implement him.
“The officer stumbled and fell to the ground as he walked away from the vehicle,” explained Glenn Grannan, chief investigator for the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.
“That’s when the three male subjects, including the driver, recruited him, struck him with a sharp object to the forehead and dragged him into the woods.”
This is a case where what they didn’t know would really hurt them when an oversight backfired, literally. Frazier was alone in an abandoned place, or so it seemed. But he wasn’t, his trusty K-9 Lucas was on patrol.
The well-trained Belgian Malinois needed only one way out, and what these criminals didn’t know was that Frazier was driving one of two K-9 units, equipped with an “assault mechanism.”
With the push of a button, the patrol car was unlocked remotely. Fortunately, Frazier was able to push the button during the fight to free Lucas.
When the patrol car door opened, the fearless K-9 officer sprang into action, to save his partner.
“We don’t know how many he took; we just know he had blood all over him. What is known is that Lucas not only defended Frazier, but probably saved his life as well.”
Although he is expected to make a full recovery, the fight for Frazier’s life left Lucas with a torn ligament, broken teeth and road rash, proving just how fearless the dog was in his effort to save his companion.
