PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (KSDK) - A Pulaski County man has been charged with domestic assault after an incident that happened last week.
Joshua Julius, 28, is charged with second-degree assault, first-degree burglary, assault of a law enforcement official, resisting arrest for a felony, and assault on a police animal.
Pulaski County Sheriff's deputies were called to a home on Haskell Drive around 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1 for a report of a domestic assault. When they arrived, they found a victim with injuries to his face. The suspect, identified as Julius, and ran from the scene before deputies arrived.
A short time later a neighbor told deputies someone matching Julius' description had just attempted to enter their home. A search by a deputy and his K-9 found Julius hiding in the woods. When the deputy approached Julius, police say he resisted arrest and assaulted the deputy and the K-9 numerous times in an attempt to escape.
Julius was taken into custody and treated at a local hospital for injuries sustained during his arrest. Neither the deputy nor the K-9 incurred serious injuries during the incident.
Bond is set at $250,000. Julius is held at the Pulaski County Jail.
