Car flips over; police dog nabs suspect

MANCHESTER — A teenager was bitten by a police dog Friday afternoon after running away from the scene of an accident and trying to hide in a wooded area, according to police.

Jack Haycock, 17, was a passenger in a car driven by Mwafeg Dawod, 19, of Manchester, that swerved across Brown Avenue near its intersection with Tessier Street about 3 p.m. Friday, went off the road, into a parking lot and flipped over, police Lt. Michael Hurley said.

Haycock, who lives in an Easter Seals group home, and another passenger, Cody Loos, 16, of Manchester, were not wearing seat belts and were thrown from the car, though neither suffered serious injuries, Hurley said.

Hurley said Haycock ran from the scene of the accident and was followed by several witnesses. Police dog Bud and his handler tracked Haycock to a wooded area near railroad tracks that run along the Merrimack River, he said.

Haycock was asked several times to come out before Bud was released, Hurley said. Bud found the teen and bit him on an arm, he said.

“That’s what they’re trained to do,” Hurley said.

All three involved in the accident were taken to Elliot Hospital for treatment of their injuries, Hurley said. Haycock was charged with resisting arrest.
