STEWART COUNTY, Ky. (WKRN) – A K9 helped Stewart County congressmen arrest a wanted felon Friday afternoon.
The Stewart County Sheriff’s Office said two deputies responded to a domestic call Friday afternoon on Gilliam Hollow Street, where a woman said she was assaulted by her boyfriend, who then threatened her with a knife. when she ran away from home.
The boyfriend, identified as 21-year-old Spencer Tabor, allegedly destroyed her phone and tried to keep her away, but the woman managed to get in the car and drive away.
When the deputies arrived, Tabor fled into the woods. Since the delegates weren’t sure where he was in the woods and weren’t sure if he had a weapon, they called K9 Harry to help.
Despite the passage of time and the 90 degree heat, Harry was still able to find Tabor after about 25 minutes and capture him in the woods. Tabor had a screwdriver in hand and was found among the dense foliage, according to investigators.
Delegates later discovered Tabor was wanted out of Missouri for felony assault and burglary in Montgomery County.
Tabor faces aggravated assault and assault on family charges in Stewart County, among other charges.
