K-9 Team Catches Domestic Battery Offender


October 26, 2018

On October 18, 2018, at approximately 2:20AM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 18700 block of West Ash Drive, Warren Township, for a domestic battery incident.

Deputies arrived and found out that Lonnie J. Henderson, 39, a former acquaintance of the victim forced himself into the victim’s home, choked and battered her. The victim was able to escape from the home and dial 911. The victim had to be treated by on-site paramedics.

Sheriff’s Deputies arrived at the home and saw that Henderson fled. Sheriff’s K-9 Dax and Deputy Forlenza tracked down Henderson. K-9 Dax tracked Henderson’s scent for a half-mile, and located him hiding in a marshy area. Once the K-9 barked at Henderson, he surrendered and was arrested without incident.

Sheriff Mark Curran said, “This is yet another example of the important value of our Sheriff’s Canine Teams. From fleeing felons to high-risk missing persons, our Canine Teams are tremendously successful keeping Lake County safe.”

Henderson was charged with Aggravated Domestic Battery (Class 2 Felony), Domestic Battery – Enhanced (Class 4 Felony), Criminal Damage to Property (Misdemeanor), Criminal Trespass to Property (Misdemeanor), and Disorderly Conduct (Misdemeanor).
