McKnight suffered a minor dog bite from the K-9 after he was found hiding behind an air unit. McKnight told police he and the girl were walking along the loading dock and started pulling on door handles. When one of the doors opened up, McKnight said he went inside.

Both McKnight and the girl were arrested. McKnight is charged with burglary, custodial interference, terroristic threatening and unlawful transaction with a minor.

Charges against the girl were not released because of her age.
