Stevenage - Stabbed Police Dog In Recovery
A Hertfordshire Police Dog, PD Finn who was stabbed in the head and in his torso, as he and his handler responded to reports of an armed robbery in Stevenage is back on his feet today.
PD Finn and his police handler Officer Dave Wardell were called out after a series of incidents in Stevenage on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning - including reports a taxi driver was being robbed at gun-point.
When PC Wardell and PD Finn responded to a further report of a second taxi company concerned about a request they had for a pick-up the officer and his charge attended the location and found a suspect running from the scene.
