(ABC 6 News) - The Rochester K-9 unit assisted with an arrest Wednesday night after a man barged into a family’s home to hide from police.

Rochester Police say Corey Nevels was arrested after he violated a restraining order and tried to run away from officers.

Police were called to the 1600 block of Marion Road just after 8 pm on a report that someone was violating an order of protection. Police found Nevels inside a home, but he jumped out a window before they could catch him.

Police set up a perimeter and called in the K-9 unit. Around the same time, a woman and her children came running out of their home, saying a man was hiding inside.

Authorities say their K-9 unit located Nevels in a bathroom and held him by his thigh until officers could arrest him.

Nevels is currently in custody at the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center.

He's facing several felony charges including first degree burglary, fleeing an officer and a felony violation of an order of protection.
