A man on the run for allegedly assaulting his brother stabbed a police dog. Officers were originally called to the 21400 block of 13th Ave. S. after receiving reports of a man beating his brother over the head with some sort of tool. When police and medics arrived, they found the victim and transported him to Harborview with head injuries. The
brother was gone. Officers spotted him a short time later. He then took off on foot. Officers and K9 from the Kent police department gave chase and found the man on the Des Moines Creek Trail. Police said the suspect stabbed Kato, the dog with a pocket knife in an effort to get away. The suspect was taken to Highline Medical Center for treatment for dog bites. Kato was rushed to an emergency veterinary hospital for emergency surgery. The suspects is expected to be booked into jail after he's released from the hospital. Kato is in stable condition and is expected to be released Wednesday afternoon.
