K-9 unit chases down, bites violent criminal, police say

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A man police say cut off his electronic monitoring device earlier this month was arrested after tracked down by a K-9 unit early Tuesday morning.

Tomy Lee Bass, 27, is charged with attempted murder, first degree burglary, second degree kidnapping, robbery with a dangerous weapon and resist, obstruct and delaying arrest, according to a news release from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

At approximately 4:30 a.m., patrol officers were dispatched to a breaking and entering call of an occupied residence in the 2500 block of Rachel St.

Once officers arrived at the home, the victim stated that the suspect forced his way into the residence and a struggle ensued before the suspect stabbed the homeowner. The victim was transported to the hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.  

The suspect ran from the location in the direction of Norris Avenue.  Officers immediately established a perimeter.  A short time later, a K-9 unit tracked the suspect to the backyard of a home on the corner of Rachel St. and Norris Ave.

During his apprehension, the suspect, identified as Tomy Lee Bass, was bitten by the K-9 and transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Bass has since been released and transported to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office.
