A domestic violence incident took a strange turn Monday night when the female suspect threw a cat at a police dog's face in order to avoid being apprehended, Orlando Police say.
According to a police report, suspect Lisa Frink went after her boyfriend, with whom she shares a home on Denton Avenue, with two knives after he refused to hand over his food stamps card.
The boyfriend, according to the report, tried to shield himself with a chair. Police say Frink still managed to stab him on the face and neck several times.
When the couple's roommate walked in, police say he grabbed Frink's wrists, forcing her to drop the knives.
She then took off running.
Police used five police dogs to track down Frink. The K-9s tracked her scent to a shed behind a home on Olivia Street. Officers found her hiding under a blanket inside that shed.
Police say an officer ordered Frink to put up her hands, but instead, she hid them under her body. Fearing she might be hiding another weapon underneath her, the officer noted in the report that he ordered his K-9 officer, Bolt, to apprehend her.
As Bolt went after Frink, the officer said he saw her pick up a cat that was also inside the shed "shoved it into K-9 Bolt's face."
After Bolt released Frink, she took off and grabbed a concrete trowel rake and tried to fend off officers with that. Police used pepper spray to get her to stop.
Frink is charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery, resisting an officer with violence, injuring a police animal as well as aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer with a deadly weapon.
Bolt suffered scratches to his nose and snout.
