With assistance from a police dog, a Billings man was arrested on suspicion of robbery and felony assault early Sunday after a vehicle was stolen in Billings Heights.
According to Billings Police Sgt. Clyde Reid, officers responded just after 3 a.m. to a report of a vehicle theft in the Heights near Bench Boulevard and Dreamers Loop.
Using another vehicle, the victim followed a man who was driving the stolen vehicle. Near the intersection of Main Street and Airport Road, the man crashed into the vehicle carrying the victim and then pointed a handgun at the victim, who was not injured, Reid said in a news release.
The man then ran west toward the 6th Street bypass. Police dispatched a K-9 unit and the police dog located a man hiding near Black Otter Trail.
Travis Frasca, 26, was arrested and transported to a local hospital to be treated for bites received during his apprehension. He then was taken to the Yellowstone County jail.
