Aberdeen man arrested after incident left him and officers injured
Aberdeen, WA – An Aberdeen man was arrested after an incident over the weekend left him and officers injured.
The Aberdeen Police Department tells KXRO that on Friday night just after 8:45 p.m., officers were sent to a report of a disorderly subject in the area of the 1700 block of Aberdeen Avenue.
Several neighbors were reporting that an adult man was outside screaming and throwing items at nearby neighbors.
Aberdeen Police say that when they arrived, the 60 year old Aberdeen man was yelling at neighbors that he was going to kill their cat then went into his residence.
They say a roommate allowed officers entry and the suspect charged at the officers, punching one in the face as they attempted to detain him.
Three officers struggled to restrain him and deployed a Taser which had no effect.
They were eventually able to gain control as additional officers arrived.
According to police, the man then kneed a large pane of glass and was able to shove an officer into it causing the suspect and officer to both sustain lacerations.
Due to the suspect’s injuries, officers attempted to apply a tourniquet while the Aberdeen Fire Department responded.
Police say that the suspect resisted efforts to treat his injuries and had to be restrained to a stretcher.
The man was taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital and released into custody several hours later.
The suspect was booked into the Aberdeen Jail on charges of Assault 3rd Degree, Reckless Endangerment, Disorderly Conduct, and Resisting Arrest.
The Aberdeen Police Department says several officers sustained minor abrasions, lacerations, and exposure to bodily fluids as a result of the incident.
