Las Vegas police dog recovering after stabbed by suspect

Updated April 15, 2020 - 4:46 pm

Las Vegas police said a K-9 named Kimura was stabbed by a “dangerous suspect” Monday night.

A post on Instagram by @lvmpdk9 said:

“K9 Kimura was stabbed many times by a dangerous suspect armed with a knife. As you know, we ask our K9 partners to perform amazing acts of heroism and Kimura delivered!”

Police said Kimura was released from the vet Wednesday and “is expected to make a full recovery and is looking forward to getting back on the streets.”

In October, another Las Vegas police K-9, Hunter, was stabbed 13 times during a barricade. He underwent surgery and was expected to make a full recovery.
