It's likely that this criminal never expected to be taken down by Thor — but it happened over the weekend.

Police in Stockton, Calif. say that on Sunday K-9 officer "Thor" disarmed Juan Hernandez after the 34-year-old reached in his pocket for a gun when confronted by authorities, KOVR-TV reported.

Hernandez had allegedly just violated his restraining order and assaulted a 38-year-old woman while brandishing a firearm.

That's when police responded and confronted him. According to police, Hernandez reached for a gun when Thor sprung into action and bit down on his arm, sending the firearm flying out of his grip.

“They are trained to alert on certain things, and when they see a suspect reaching into their pocket they know something is going to be coming out,” Stockton police officer Joe Silva told KOVR-TV.

Hernandez was then quickly arrested and taken into custody for a litany of charges, including resisting arrest and burglary — all thanks to Thor.

“They are trained to actually seek out the threat, and Thor did that tonight which obviously saved either someone living at that house, a neighbor and our officer from dealing with someone that was armed with a firearm,” Silva said.
