Car chase, foot chase, dog bite leads to arrest

Timothy Davis, 37, was lodged at the Clackamas County Jail

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- One suspect led Sandy police on a car and foot chase before a K-9 helped get him into custody.

Around 11:40 p.m. Thursday, residents on Dubarko Road heard their car start outside. Thinking it was in the process of being stolen, one called 911 while the other followed the car -- letting police know what direction it went.

An officer saw the stolen car on Bluff Road and pursued it after it attempted to evade him. The pursuit ended in front of Sandy High School where it hit a small tree. 

Police said the suspect started to surrender, but then fled on foot. With the help of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and a Portland police K-9 unit, 37-year-old Timothy Davis was taken into custody after a short search.

Davis was treated at a nearby hospital for a dog bite and then lodged at the Clackamas County Jail. He was booked on a warrant as well as attempting to elude police in a vehicle, attempting to elude police on foot, resisting arrest, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and reckless driving.

The stolen vehicle was returned to its owner.
