An 18-year-old Surrey man is facing charges after a foot pursuit early Tuesday ended with a police officer getting punched.

According to Surrey RCMP, the incident unfolded around 12:30 a.m. Nov. 1, as officers patrolling near 124A Street and 24 Avenue in South Surrey conducted a random check on a group of youths in the area.

The Mounties’ dedicated helicopter and a dog-and-handler team were dispatched to assist after one teen suspected to be breaching curfew conditions bolted from the scene.

Police say a suspect was located by the dog unit shortly after, hiding in a nearby garage. Following arrest, he was taken to Peace Arch Hospital for treatment of a minor dog bite to his leg.

Charges of breach of probation and assaulting a police officer have been recommended.
