VPD dog mistakenly bites 75-year-old Vancouver man during arrest of burglary suspects

A 75-year-old man was mistakenly bitten in the leg by a Vancouver police dog Tuesday while officers were attempting to arrest three suspects in connection with a burglary to a home on West 37th Avenue near Granville Street and another break-in in Maple Ridge.

Const. Jason Doucette, a VPD media liaison officer, wouldn’t discuss the extent of the man’s injuries but said he required treatment in hospital before being released. The man was in the parking lot of the former Fraser Arms hotel on Southwest Marine Drive, near Granville Street, and was exiting his truck at about 5:30 p.m. when he was bitten.
