A heroic Warwickshire Police Dog put himself in danger when he sprung into action in the early hours of this morning after two paramedics were assaulted and missiles were thrown at police officers.
The incident began when a male assaulted two West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) paramedics.
The emergency medics radioed for urgent police assistance after coming under attack.
999 Response Team officers, backed up by Warwickshire Police’s dog unit, rushed to the scene to help the paramedics.
As officers arrived, the male turned his attention from the paramedics to the police and started to throw bottles at officers.
The suspect continued to act in a violent and volatile way towards the emergency workers.
Brave police dog ‘Pyro’ sprung into action and put himself between the emergency workers and the violent male.
PD ‘Pyro’ ended up biting the dangerous suspect before officers detained him and brought him into custody.
PD Pyro, a firearms support dog, was not injured during the incident.
