Man arrested after allegedly assaulting woman, officer

A Rochester police officer was allegedly assaulted early Sunday while responding to a call of a domestic assault in progress.

Officers responded about 3 a.m. to the 1800 block of 10th Avenue Southeast, where the caller said a 26-year-old female had locked herself in a room and a 29-year-old man was allegedly trying to kick the door in.

As they approached the residence, the woman ran outside, chased by the man, the report says. One of the officers grabbed the male, who began to struggle, said Capt. John Sherwin. The officer was kneed in the groin. The suspect was eventually taken to the ground and arrested.

The 29-year-old man remained in custody this morning awaiting multiple charges, including fourth-degree assault of a peace officer and fifth-degree domestic assault.

The Post-Bulletin typically doesn't identify suspects until they've been charged.
