Suspect arrested after attempted break-in at Westlake woman's home

Police sent a dog after a man who allegedly broke into a woman's home in the Westlake district, and the suspect was arrested during a struggle in which officers used stun guns on him early today.

The arrest at 667 S. Coronado St. occurred about 1 a.m., said Los Angeles police Sgt. Melvin Gamble of the Rampart Station. The man's name and booking charges were not immediately available.

The suspect was taken to a hospital, according to a Newsreel camera crew at the scene.

The man and the woman had some sort of relationship, but the woman apparently did not want him there, police said.

The man refused to surrender and, after about three hours, police sicced a dog on him, Newsreel reported. The man was bitten in the face and continued to resist arrest, until police used stun guns on him, according to Newsreel.
