BEND, Ore. (AP) -- It took a police dog and a Taser to stop a man suspected of stabbing two people at a bar in Bend.

Police were responding early Sunday when they saw the suspect running away. When he refused to stop, officers deployed a police dog.

The suspect fought with the dog and its handler for several minutes. Officers finally used the Taser to subdue the 22-year-old. He was treated at a hospital and booked into the Deschutes County Jail on assault charges.

The Bulletin reports (http://is.gd/mvCYLg) a man and woman, both 26, who were stabbed in the brawl were treated at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend.
