Toronto Police dog hit with brick during arrest

A Toronto police dog named “Rookie” may need a new name now he’s been injured in the line of duty.

“You can decide that,” said Sgt. John Rose with the K-9 unit, adding Rookie has been on the road a long time.

On Monday, a call came in to the Jane St. and Finch Ave, area for a suspect wanted for several offences and Rookie and his handler responded.

“They went to the call to investigate and a confrontation occurred between the handler and dog and the suspect,” Rose said.

During the scuffle, the suspect located a brick and hit Rookie in the lower mouth, but he is recovering fine.

The handler wasn’t injured.

The police’s Emergency Task Force later took Raheem McLaughlin, 24, of Toronto into custody and charged him with injuring a police dog.

McLaughlin was wanted on several warrants including 15 counts of breaking probation, four counts of mischief, two counts of uttering threats, two counts of break and enter, three counts of assault with a weapon and forcible confinement.
