JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Jamestown police dog stabbed while trying to find a man charged with killing his wife will serve a special role in the city’s Christmas parade.
The Jamestown Renaissance Corporation’s website says K-9 Officer Mitchell will serve as the parade’s Grand Marshall this year.
Mitchell was allegedly stabbed by Keith Robbins after police sent him inside a home to find the man during a six-hour standoff. The dog underwent emergency surgery and survived.
Robbins was indicted on charges of fatally shooting his wife and stabbing Mitchell.
