SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — It’s hard to watch, but this video is getting a lot of attention online. It shows Sioux Falls police ordering a domestic abuse suspect to get out of a window well and lie down on the ground.
When he doesn’t follow the orders, an officer kicks the man and a K-9 officer bites him. The suspect made his first court appearance on Monday and his alleged victim shared her story with KELOLAND News.
The case is shedding a light on domestic abuse. It’s happening a lot more often than you might expect.
Tuesday on KELOLAND News we are digging into the numbers and talking to police about just how common of a crime it’s becoming.
