The deputies then called in a K-9 unit from Santa Rosa and made entry into the house, yelling for the boyfriend to give himself up or they’d let the dog loose.

The man in the bed claimed nothing violent happened between him and the woman, but she told a different story. The alleged victim said she had accused the man of cheating on her and a verbal confrontation ensued that then turned physical. The man allegedly pinned the woman to the bed and held her mouth closed, while children in the residence watched.
