A Marion County K9 tracked down a man accused of assaulting his wife.
Deputies said Lonny Prince, 45, was wanted for a prior domestic assault and for violating a restraining order prohibiting him from having contact with his wife and children.
At around 3 a.m. Sunday, deputies learned he was at his wife's Salem home on Randi Lane Northeast.
As deputies arrived, they said Prince was on her property near a backyard shop building. He immediately turned and ran away.
A deputy and his K9, named Rolo, began tracking Prince's scent. The dog tracked the suspect several blocks to a home on Indiana Avenue.
Rolo detected Prince hiding behind an outbuilding.
Investigators said Prince has a history of carrying weapons and it wasn't known if he was armed.
Deputy Jason Bernards warned Prince that Rolo would be released to seize him if he didn't surrender. Prince then immediately surrendered.
Prince was not armed at the time of his arrest.
He was booked into the Marion County Jail on charges of domestic assault and violating a restraining order. Salem police added another charge, saying he accosted his wife and children at a McDonald's restaurant March 21.
Deputy Bernards and Rolo, a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois, have accounted for 16 captures in the past three months.
