A man armed with a knife robbed a clerk at the Erickson's Thriftway grocery store in NE Bend Monday night.  But he didn't get far before he was arrested, with the help of a police dog, Haras.


The Bend Police Department says the robbery occurred around 9:30 p.m. at the store on  Greenwood Avenue.  The man showed a knife to a checker, got cash and ran, and was tracked to the park near the store.


 Bend Police spokesman Sgt. Ron Taylor says the police dog was very helpful. -


bite "And- in this case, it was still difficult for the officers to locate the person- he was hiding in a thicket and even with the aid of a flashlight it was hard to see the man- the color of his sweatshirt- it was really the canine and his nose- locating this individual for us."


The suspect is 41 year old Michael Monroe, who police say is a transcient. He resisted arrest and was bitten by the dog,  and was still being treated at St. Charles in Bend as of early Monday morning.
