Foot chase goes on to roof, into homes

WEST END, OH (FOX19) - A traffic stop turned into a police chase in the West End that went on to rooftops and into homes.

It started around 2:30 p.m. Thursday on Dayton Street when the passenger of the car took off when police pulled the car over.

The man tried to break into a house, went on the roof of the house, then broke into another house. The occupants of the house were home, but not hurt.

Police ended up calling the sheriff's helicopter and K-9 units were called to help search. One of the K-9 units bit the suspect, so the suspect was taken to the hospital for treatment.

The suspect's name has not yet been released.
