Police officer, dog hurt in knife attack

A police officer's stab-resistant vest probably saved him from serious injury when he and a police dog were attacked by a knife-wielding man early today.


One officer suffered minor cuts to his leg and chest and police dog Koal received cuts to its head. But the dog got his own back by biting the offender.

"I have no doubt we'd be looking at potentially more serious injuries if he (the officer attacked) had not been wearing the vest," said Senior Sergeant Rob Patterson. MORE>>

(NZPolice) Police dog Koal and his handler are also recovering well and will now enjoy a month's leave which had been previously arranged.
