Scott David 

Manchester Police say K-9 Colt latched onto homeless man

MANCHESTER - A homeless man was treated for a bite wound to his leg after police said he broke into a vacant apartment house and was "apprehended" by K-9 Colt.

Scott David, 48, no fixed address, was arrested Sunday afternoon inside 305 Hanover St. Someone called police after seeing a "suspicious man" crawling through a window into the apartment building, according to a news release.

Officer Lisa Mackey arrived and began checking the building. Looking through a window, she saw a man inside and yelled for him to come out. Instead, police said the man fled further into the building.

Police then called in Officer Chris Biron and K-9 Colt to search the building. Officers announced the police dog was there, to give David a chance to come out, but when he didn't, Biron and K-9 Colt began the search.

They quickly located David hiding in a room on the second floor where Colt bit David in the leg. He was arrested without further incident, police said.

David was charged with criminal trespass and resisting arrest, then taken to the hospital for treatment of the bite wound.
