A man wanted on a felony warrant who jumped out a window to flee from Santa Paula Police officers was arrested - but only after he was bitten by a SPPD K-9 and received a minor injury.

According to SPPD Lieutenant Troyce Reynolds, the incident occurred Saturday, November 6 at about 6:40 p.m. when officers attempted to serve a felony warrant on Alex Carrillo in the 100 block of Felkins Road. Reynolds said officers found Carrillo, a 19-year-old Santa Paula resident, inside the residence, “but he fled out a bedroom window.”

A perimeter had been set up outside the residence, and once Carrillo was outside SPPD officers confronted him. Carrillo physically resisted the officers until K-9 Hozy, whose partner is Officer Randy Haumann, got involved.

“Carrillo was taken into custody with the assistance of Hozy,” and Reynolds said he was treated at the scene for a minor dog bite. Carrillo was charged with the original felony warrant, and Reynolds said a charge of suspicion of resisting arrest was added.
