Police dogs helped officers track down a domestic violence suspect in the garden of a house in Market Harborough late last night (Monday).
Leicestershire Police’s Special Operations Unit drafted in police dog Katia alongside other highly-trained dogs to carry out the search.
The force’s specialist squad was scrambled to the scene after the alert was sounded at about 10.15pm last night.
“Officers received a report from a member of the public that a man had assaulted a woman and was acting aggressively at a property on Highfield Street, Market Harborough,” said police.
“When officers attended, the man had left the scene.
“Dogs from the Special Operations Unit assisted the search and the man, a 30-year-old from Market Harborough, was found in a nearby garden.”
The man was arrested on suspicion of assault and remains in custody today.
“Enquiries are ongoing,” added police.
