Police officer, Todd Frazier, was investigating a suspicious looking parked car when he was ambushed and attacked by 3 men.
Todd was severely beaten, his forehead had been gashed and he was given multiple bodily injuries. As the 3 men began dragging him into the woods he managed to break one hand free. In that split moment, he was able to press the button that opened his car door, releasing his police dog Lucas.
Out of all the police cars in town, only two have the specially-designed quick release hatch. This hatch is designed to speed up canine backup support.
When Todd pressed the hatch, the heroic dog realized his owner was under attack and bit one of the assailants then charged at another, saving the officer’s life.
Chief deputy Don Bass told the Clarion-Ledger: “They told him they were going to slit his throat, and they were dragging him toward the woods.”
Thankfully Police Officer Todd Frazier had an angel by his side.
