A K-9 Police Officer checking on a suspicious looking parked car was dragged into the woods by three men to be killed. He was saved by his loyal K-9 dog who ran after him and then chased the assailants off.
The driver of a parked car seemed to have passed out. As Deputy Todd Frazier approached the car he was ambushed by the driver and two other men, who then dragged him into the woods, threatening to ‘slit his throat’. Frazier from Long Beach, Mississippi managed to free one of his tied hands and unlock the doors to his squad car using the remote control on his key chain.
His trusted dog, Lucas, jumped out of the squad car sensing trouble for his partner. He bit at least one attacker and chased them all off. The three suspects drove off in a Town car and are still at large.
The Daily Mail reports:
Deputy Todd Frazier of Long Beach, Mississippi, a K-9 officer, pulled over last Monday night to check on a car when he noticed that the man in the front seat appeared to be passed out and the lights were off.
That is when two men appeared nearby and distracted him as the driver got out and ambushed him. All three men dragged Frazier into the nearby woods.
‘They told him they were going to slit his throat, and they were dragging him toward the woods,’ Chief Deputy Don Bass said according to The Clarion-Ledger.
He said the men then planned on dumping the body after killing him.
When asked if the incident might have something to do with recent gangs stating they would attack any police officers they encountered on sight, Bass said: ‘At this point in time I don’t care.’
Regardless of their motivation, the men were quickly foiled when Frazier managed to unlock the back doors of his squad car using a pop mechanism that he activated on his key chain.
That sent Lucas, Frazier’s police dog, running after his owner and the men.
The dog bit at least one of the attackers before they ran off, jumping into the Town Car Frazier first stopped to inspect and speeding away from the scene.
Frazier suffered a two-and-a-half-inch cut to his forehead from what a doctor believes was a box cutter and multiple other bodily injuries.
He was taken to a local hospital and released.
Bass later conceded the incident may have to do with gangs in the area.
‘We’ve been stressing this for months and months now. It’s no different from last week. We get a BOLO (be-on-the-lookout) from the state alerting us that the Black Gangster Disciples have put out an SOS, or Shoot on Sight, for police officers,’ he said.
‘For a couple of months we’ve been preaching safety because we knew our location between New Orleans and on the I-10 corridor… it’s going to happen here.’
The three suspects remain at large. Anyone with information in this case is asked to call the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department at (228) 255-9191.
