Man leads Calif. cops on chase, ends in K-9 bite

Police recovered a gun tossed from the vehicle

Associated Press

WEST COVINA, Calif. — A robbery suspect led police on a chase through Los Angeles suburbs that included his apparent girlfriend climbing into his still-moving van and ended with a dog bite.

West Covina police tell City News Service the man jumped into a white van outside a just-robbed credit union Monday, and police gave chase.

It led to Whittier, where the van slowed while the woman jumped on, then climbed in through a rear window.

The van soon stopped and she surrendered, but he refused.

Police sent in a dog and he scampered out as it bit his legs, cash spilling from the van.

Police say they recovered a gun tossed from the vehicle.

The man was hospitalized for the dog bite and the woman was arrested. Police have not released their names.
