HOUSTON – A man suspected of stabbing a Houston police K-9 has been finally captured in Waller County.
After disappearing following a police chase on Tuesday, authorities said smith was located about 50 miles northwest of Houston, walking along a highway in Waller County. Police said a tip led authorities to smith’s location.
He is facing a charge of evading arrest.
It is the second such charge Smith is facing since police allege that he attempted a carjacking Saturday morning. After fleeing the scene of the carjacking and allegedly stealing merchandise from a store, Smith went to a nearby apartment parking garage.
At the garage, a Houston police dog caught up with Smith, who is accused of stabbing the animal.
The suspect was arrested on charges of robbery, interference with a police service animal and evading arrest.
Later on Sunday, he was released from the Harris County jail after family members had posted his bonds.
