Suspect accused of attacking Wake sheriff's deputy, K-9
Posted November 12, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — A Wake County sheriff's deputy and his K-9 partner are recovering from injuries they received Tuesday night after encountering a Garner man accused of assaulting them.
Investigators say Dlonzo Siciliona Wilson, 21, of 200 Lorraine Drive, attacked Deputy C. B. Brennan and the dog, Conan, after they stopped along Riley Hill Road near Raleigh to check on him.
Capt. Jimmy Stevens with the Wake County Sheriff's Office said that Wilson ran from Brennan and attacked him after the deputy discovered Wilson was wanted on a parole violation.
When Brennan and Conan caught up with Wilson, Stevens said, he resisted.
Arrest warrants allege Wilson hit Conan several times with a closed fist and also elbowed Brennan in the body and arms.
Both Brennan and Conan were doing well Wednesday evening, Stevens said.
