SAN LEANDRO (CBS SF) — A police dog helped track down a domestic violence suspect who fled from officers Sunday night in San Leandro.
At about 7:25 p.m., an officer stopped 31-year-old Charles Fryer for allegedly riding a bicycle in the 1100 block of David Street without safety lights, according to police.
After giving the officer his name, Fryer abandoned the bike and fled on foot into a nearby neighborhood, running through several yards, police said.
The officer attempted to chase Fryer but lost sight of him.
Additional officers and a police K-9 unit responded and conducted a yard-to-yard search.
Fryer was eventually found by the K-9 unit, hiding in a tight crawl space beneath an occupied house in the 1300 block of Orchard Avenue, police said.
Fryer was apprehended by the police dog and transported to a local hospital, where he was treated for injuries.
Authorities later discovered that Fryer was wanted for outstanding arrest warrants, including a domestic violence charge, according to police.
Fryer is expected to be transported to Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, and will be arraigned in Hayward Superior Court later this week.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the San Leandro Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division at (510) 577-3230 or the Anonymous Tip Line at (510) 577-3278.
