Sheriff K9 unit assists in assault arrests
Second degree assault suspects were booked and are being held after an incident originating in Harris in the early part of October 1. A sheriff investigative unit sergeant said three men went to a Harris area home and threatened two victims with a gun, while trying to get away from the property with narcotics and cash. This happened about 3 a.m. One victim was assaulted. The vehicle at the home had its tires slashed so the suspects could not be followed.
North Branch Police observed the suspect vehicle later being sought in connection with the assault report, at an address in North Branch. Multiple local agencies assisted the sheriff’s office to make the arrest. The K9 unit was called in when two of three 36-year-old male suspects who were eventually arrested, fled the house. The trail was quickly picked up by the K9 dog and deputy handler.
More details will be available once the active investigation wraps up, the sergeant said.
A window was broken at a residence in Sunrise Township and bullet was found inside. A man was arrested for reckless discharge of a firearm.
