  • A St. Robert man has been charged for assaulting a canine and a Pulaski County Deputy, according to Sheriff Ron Long.
    Joshua Julius, 28, of St. Robert, was charged with four felony charges and a misdemeanor for an incident that occurred last week.
    On Oct. 1, deputies were called to a residence on Haskell Drive, just outside of the St. Robert city limits, for a domestic assault incident.
    Julius had already fled on foot by the time officers arrived on scene.
    A short time later, the Sheriff's Department was notified by a neighbor that someone matching the suspect's description had just attempted to unlawfully enter their home.
    When the deputy and his canine found Julius in the woods, the deputy attempted to apprehend Julius and Julius then assaulted the deputy and his canine to resist arrest.
    The probable cause statement said that Julius fought with the deputy and and punched the dog in order to resist arrest.
    Julius was soon arrested before being treated at a local hospital and released, due to injuries received while resisting arrest and assaulting the deputies.
    Neither the deputy nor the dog received substantial injuries during the incident.
    Joshua Julius has been official charged by the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney's Office for the offenses of domestic assault in the second degree, first degree burglary, resisting arrest for a felony offense and assault on a police animal.
    Julius' Bond was set at $250,000 by Judge Rhonda Cortesini.
