2 young children found stabbed to death in Brockton

  2 young children found stabbed to death in Brockton Two young children were found stabbed to death in Brockton on Monday, according to city officials. Plymouth Country District Attorney Timothy Cruz said the victims, who were found dead inside an apartment at 247 Prospect St., are believed to be 5 and 8 years old. Cruz said the children were related. "If anybody made any observations around this area, please reach out to the Brockton Police Department," Cruz said. Mayor Bill Carpenter's office sent out a robocall to members of the Brockton City Council on Monday afternoon confirming the stabbing deaths of two children in the city. A neighbor told The Enterprise that he witnessed a woman living on the third floor calling down to a man who lives on the second floor, telling him to call the police around noon. The distraught woman was later brought to Good Samaritan Medical Center by ambulance. Traffic was closed off on both sides of the aging three-family home, which has faded gray paint, with a rug draped over the third floor balcony. Vehicles were being directed down Weston Street. A different neighbor, Elizabeth Gomes-Burton, who was watching the scene from her front steps on Weston Street home, said several families live in the house where the stabbing took place. “I never really liked that house,” Gomes-Burton said. “There was always a lot of noise and people hanging out outside.” Gomes-Burton said while she often saw people congregating around the house, she never saw police come around. An animal control officer was later seen removing a single cat from the third floor apartment.

A man with a 7-inch kitchen knife stabbed a San Diego Police dog during an arrest at an Encanto home Monday morning — an attack that came shortly after officers had shot the man using bean-bag rounds.

The 22-year-old man was struck four times with bean bags during the encounter, police Lt. Charles Lara told reporters.

Police said the dog, a Belgian Malinois named Dexter who has been with the San Diego Police Department for a year and a half, underwent surgery and is expected to recover.

The incident began about 8:30 a.m. when police received a call about a woman who was having difficulty controlling her adult son at the home, Lara said.

SAN DIEGO -- A police service dog was stabbed several times Monday during a brief standoff with a knife -wielding man in a San Diego neighborhood, authorities said. The confrontation began shortly after 8:30 a.m., following a 911 call from a resident who reported that her 22-year-old son

An officer arrived to find the woman sweeping up broken glass from a picture frame. She told the officer that her son said he was “going to fight the police” if they arrived, Lara said.

The son then came to the door holding what looked like a butcher’s knife, Lara said. Officers repeatedly told him to drop the weapon. He refused, and police fired bean bags at the man.

Although he was struck, the rounds “had a negligible effect on him,” Lara said.

Officers then released the dog, which bit the man on his left arm. During the struggle, the man stabbed Dexter in the torso.

Officer Larry Adair of the K-9 unit said Dexter suffered a broken rib and ruptured spleen. He underwent surgery at an emergency veterinary facility and was in stable condition Monday afternoon.

Hero police dog stabbed with 10 inch blade while on duty. Adam SmithSunday 28 Jan 2018 7 :25 pm. A police dog came close to dying after he was stabbed with a ten- inch knife by someone resisting arrest .

Adair said Dexter is expected to recover and return to duty. K-9 personnel will slowly introduce him to “similar stimuli” to see how he reacts as part of recovery efforts.

Dexter’s handler, whose name was not released, was not hurt.

“I can't tell you how hard it is to see your partner, your friend, your pal, your best friend, stabbed — wounded,” said Adair, whose own police dog has been hurt in the line of duty.

He said it is not an easy decision to release a canine, but one that at times is necessary to protect the public.

“It’s awful because we spend our time with these dogs,” Adair said. “They come home with us; they live with us. We take care of them … but ultimately, at the end of the day, it’s a police service dog and that dog’s job is to help preserve human life. We know that as handlers. It’s very difficult to send them into harm’s way, but that is the job.”

Lara echoed similar sentiments, saying, “We obviously never want to use any kind of force to take a person into custody.”

He continued: “This gentleman gave no indication that he was going to surrender, continued to be belligerent, [and was] armed with a knife.”

After the man was taken into custody, police had to use restraints “because he was not compliant and banging his head inside the police vehicle,” Lara said.

The man, who was taken to a hospital, could be charged with assaulting a police dog, displaying a weapon at an officer in a threatening manner and resisting arrest. Authorities also were looking at helping his mother obtain a protective order.

Formed in 1984, San Diego police’s K-9 unit, with 33 teams, is one of the largest in the country.
