On July 30, 2019, at approximately 6:45 p.m., the Street Crimes Unit and K9 Cwyk and his officer handler responded to the apartment of a suspect who was identified to have been involved in a domestic road-rage incident that happened earlier in the day on Beltline around 1:30 p.m. 

The team established a perimeter around the residence, and contacted the suspect, Abrham Johns Acuna, age 26, who was inside. SCU hailed Acuna to come out and Acuna was informed that he had several warrants for arrest. After repeated attempts to get him to exit the residence, he was informed that a K9 would enter and assist with locating and taking him into custody. 

A short time later, the team observed Acuna exiting the back side of the residence and he was taken into custody with the assistance of K9 Cwyk. He was arrested without incident on warrants for Felon in Possession of Firearm, Harassment, Possession Controlled Substance Methamphetamine, Menacing, DUII, and transported to the Lane County Jail.
