BEND, Ore. (AP) - The Deschutes County, Oregon, sheriff’s office says an inmate who escaped from a work crew near the jail has been recaptured after an encounter with a police dog.

The sheriff’s office says 38-year-old Keith Allen Schmidtke of Tumalo ran through the parking lot Sunday night and scaled a fence.

On Monday afternoon, detectives acting on a tip tried to arrest Schmidtke at a home but they say he ran. He was bitten after a police dog found him in a backyard. After another foot chase involving law enforcement officers, he was taken into custody.

The sheriff’s office said he was being taken back to the county jail after a detour to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
