The police K9 takes attempted kidnapper

K9 Titan won a man who tried to abduct a child in Pasco County, Florida.

A police dog in Florida found on Monday what a good boy he is.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said the K-9 with the name “Titan” helped take down a man who tried to kidnap a child from a home in New Port Richey, located northwest of Tampa on Monday.

The man, who as a 24-year-old Kevin Wilson, had arrived at the house and climbed up to the second floor with a window. Wilson entered the home, arguing with a woman and then grabbed a child and took off.

The sheriff’s office said that a no-contact order in place, and Wilson was not supposed to have contact with the mother or to the house. The child’s uncle grabbed his gun and confronted Wilson in the front yard before the 24-year-old released the child and fled, police told FOX13.

An officer and Titan finally caught up with the 24-year-old, while he was active in the forest, and the police dog quickly went to work. In surveillance video released by the sheriff’s office, Titan can be seen, based on Wilson’s arm with his teeth as a deputy commands the 24-year-old on his belly or else the dog would not let go.

Wilson is charged with interference with custody, child neglect in addition to violating his no-contact order, and is held at the Pasco County Jail.
