A police dog early Tuesday tracked down a Baldwin man wanted for violating an order of protection in Roslyn Heights, police said.

Kareem Brown, 23, of 850 St. Lukes Place, fled the scene after the 20-year-old victim contacted police, Nassau County police said.

Officers and K-9 Gehrig searched the area for Brown, and Gehrig found him on Pearsall Place at about 3:40 p.m., police said in a news release.

During the pursuit, Gehrig was injured on a fence "requiring immediate surgery to correct his condition," police said, without specifying the nature of the injury.
