A police dog helped apprehend a Lodi man after police said he ran from an officer early Wednesday.

An officer on patrol said he noticed two men hiding behind a car and acting suspicious around 3 a.m. near the intersection of Church Street and Eureka Avenue, according to Lodi police. When the officer tried to speak to the men, Jonathan Sims, 22, said he wasn’t going to stick around and ran, police said.

The officer deployed his dog, which knocked the man to the ground. Police said that when the officer tried to arrest Sims, the suspect punched him several times. Sims ran again, but the dog bit Sims, allowing the officer to make the arrest, police said.

Sims is being held on suspicion of obstructing a police officer, as well as possessing burglary tools and marijuana.
