DEER PARK, OH (FOX19) -

A 25-year-old man is accused of robbing a gas station and trying to assault a K9 and officers.

Robert Reeves of Sycamore Township faces charges of aggravated robbery, assault, resisting arrest and theft, court records show.

Reeves allegedly robbed a Plainfield Road gas station/convenience store in Deer Park of $68.99 in cigarettes on Saturday while indicating he had a gun, police wrote.

He had "a black shiny object in his right fist, mostly concealed by his sleeve, while stating he had a gun and was going to shoot the clerk....," a criminal complaint states.

The clerk complied, and the suspect ran off, Deer Park police wrote on their Facebook page.

With the assistance of police from Blue Ash, Maderia, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, and Amberly Village, Deer Park officers were able to quickly surround and "flood the area," they wrote. 

"With further help from residents on Ohio Avenue in Deer Park and East Gatewood Avenue in Silverton, the suspect was contained within a few blocks, allowing Maderia's K9 "Doc" and handler Officer Ed Farris to track and locate the suspect hiding in the woods by the railroad tracks behind Meijer's Winery," police wrote.

"The suspect fought both the K-9 and officers but was subdued and taken into custody. No gun was found."

Reeves was taken to the hospital for treatment from dog bites and taken to the Hamilton County jail.

"All money and evidence were recovered and the clerk, while obviously shook up, was not injured," police wrote. "Nice job, Doc! Good boy!"
