Police responding to reports of a man dragging a woman into a vehicle Saturday had two police cars rammed and an assist from a dog before charging a suspect with abduction and procuring for prostitution.
Citizens called 911 when a 20-year-old woman was seen being forced into a vehicle near Eastern and Carlaw avenues around 5 p.m. ET Saturday.
When the police arrived, the suspect fled in the car, which police say was stolen. After smashing into two police cars, the man entered a stranger's house.
That's where he met Romeo, the Rottweiler. The dog's owner, John Tate, says Romeo didn't bark or growl, he simply grabbed the suspect's arm. Romeo held him until Tate grabbed the intruder and told the dog to let go.
The man managed to escape from the house, but was nabbed by police.
Richard Nicholos, 46, is charged with forcible confinement, assault with a weapon, sexual assault, procuring a person to become a prostitute, threatening death and related charges. Toronto police Det. Allan Thomson says no one was seriously hurt. The 20-year-old woman, who police say was brought from Quebec a week earlier, was shaken up and one officer has a minor leg injury.
He gives credit to Toronto residents who did the right thing and got involved helping police.
