Suspect Stabs K-9 Dog Under Both Eyes

A Houston-area woman has been arrested after stabbing a police K-9 dog under both eyes as police officers tried to apprehend her Monday, police said.  The suspect is identified as Abigail Martinez, 23, and had been wanted on an outstanding felony drug warrant when Baytown police officers approached her recreational vehicle, KRIS-TV reported.

>Police said Martinez refused to come out of an RV. Police warned her they were sending in a K-9.

“The K-9 quickly located the suspect in the back bedroom area. And when the K-9 went to approach the suspect, the suspect had a small piece of plastic, the handle to an eyebrow trimmer of some sort, and jabbed at the dog, striking the dog one time on each eye,” Baytown Police Lt. Steve Dorris said.

Martinez was arrested and charged with a felony drug warrant and interfering with a police service dog. The dog was treated at a local hospital for two puncture wounds under the eyes, before being returned to duty.
