QUINCY (CBS) – The K-9 officer that helped capture a robbery suspect following a nine-hour standoff in Quincy on Friday is recovering from a number of injuries, police said on Saturday.

Wellesley police reported that a Plymouth County Sheriff K-9 named ‘Blitz’ was with SWAT team members in the attic when the dog sniffed out Wellesley bank robbery suspect Brian Kalil hiding behind several items.

Police say Kalil attacked Blitz and threw the dog down a set of stairs. Despite being injured, Blitz reportedly went right back into harm’s way and helped SWAT members get a struggling Kalil into custody.

Blitz suffered a puncture wound, cuts, lacerations, and bruises to his face, nose, and chest area.  Kalil was also injured.

He will return to duty once he’s recovered from his injuries.

Aside from the bank robbery charges, Kalil will be charged in Quincy for assault and battery on a police dog.
