A teenager accused of three burglaries over the weekend was apprehended by a police dog team, receiving a bite in the process.
Acting Inspector Craig Dinnissen, of Dunedin, said the 18-year-old was seen at an address in Great King St before jumping over a fence.
He was then reported to have committed a burglary in North Rd before police were called and he was tracked by dog units, Isnp Dinnissen said.
"And due to his aggressiveness he received a bite."
The youth, who also had a warrant out for his arrest, received medical treatment immediately after.
Also at the weekend in Canongate, near central Dunedin, police received a report of a man being bundled into the boot of a car.
However, when officers made inquiries, those allegedly involved would not disclose what happened, and other than that "no one was talking," Isnp Dinnissen said.
