Teen girl allegedly attacks police dog

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – A Chicopee Police dog is OK after he was allegedly hit and kicked by a 15-year-old girl Saturday night.

According to the Chicopee Police Facebook page, police dog Kane was helping South Hadley Police take two runaways from the Massachusetts Department of Youth Services into custody.

Police said the girl went to the hospital for her injuries and is being charged with mistreating a police dog and two counts of assault and battery on a police officer.
