K9 Thor died after suffering injuries while attempting an apprehension of an abduction suspect in a densely wooded area behind Executive Square.

Officers had responded to a nearby motel after receiving reports that a woman who had been abducted was being held there. As officers arrived the abduction suspect, who was reported to be armed, fled into thick woods behind the motel. K9 Thor located the subject in thickets and was released for an apprehension.

Thor became separated from his handler as the suspect fled deeper into the woods. A short time later a resident called 911 to report the suspect was in a backyard, where he was taken into custody.

Members of the Connecticut State Police located Thor suffering from numerous cuts and internal bleeding. It is believed that Thor was kicked by the suspect or was injured in a fall. Thor was taken to a local animal hospital where he died after being reunited with his handler.

K9 Thor had served with the Wethersfield Police Department for two years.
