PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - Deputies say an Escambia County Sheriff’s K-9 is recovering after an armed robbery suspect kicked, punched and choked the dog while fleeing authorities.

The incident happened Sunday night near Pensacola.

Investigators say 44-year-old Napoleon Bonapart Grandison now faces multiple charges, including battery on a law enforcement officer following the attack.

An arrest report says Grandison was wearing a wig and bandanna mask when he indicated to a convenience store clerk that he had a gun. Investigators say he took money from the cash register and left.

The Pensacola News Journal (https://on.pnj.com/2e1mrSV ) reports Alek the K-9 tracked Grandison to a nearby home. The arrest report says he pushed two deputies and attacked the dog.

Grandison is being held on a $296,000 bond. Records don’t indicate whether he has a lawyer.
