Around 11:14 p.m. Christmas Eve, a canine officer noticed a man leaving a vehicle in the 1100 block of Rae Street.
When the officer told the man to stop, he began to flee.
A police service dog was deployed and apprehended the man.
The suspect received minor injuries and was treated at hospital prior to being taken into custody.
