Nothing was going to stop this canine officer from doing his duty.
Last Thursday, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Department (LVMPD) in Nevada responded to a call where alleged gunshots and screams for help were heard inside a home, ABC affiliate 13 Action News reported. The situation quickly escalated into a 12-hour barricade standoff that carried on into Friday, with negotiators attempting to lure out the suspect. When negotiation attempts failed, the LVMPD's SWAT team eventually decided to send their K9 officers to raid the apartment. They couldn't have anticipated what came next.
The suspect was armed with a machete and attacked K9 officer Nicky, the beloved partner of Sgt. Eric Kerns. The two have been working together for three years.
Despite being stabbed multiple times in the head, Nicky did not cry or whimper when he was attacked - instead, he continued to fight until the suspect had been taken down. Even better, police say the male suspect was bitten multiple times before being taken into custody.
