Officer Assault-suspect arrested

On 06/16/09,  at approximately 5:47 p.m., officers were working off-duty at a Middle School,  in the 300 block of  21st Ave. E., during the school’s graduation exercise.

These officers observed a female at the school, who had been trespassed. As the  officers began to contact the female suspect, a disturbance broke out with other subjects attempting to interfere with the arrest. Multiple officers responded to assist. A  2nd suspect,  was subsequently arrested for assaulting one of the officers.

A third female jumped on the back of one of the patrol vehicles as the officer began driving from the scene with an arrestee secured in the back. This female got off the car and fled when ordered off. Officers were not able to detain or identify the individual because of the large crowd continuing to cause a disturbance at the school.

Suspect 1, a 16-year-old female was declined by Youth Service Center.  Officers requested she be charged with Trespass and Disruption of School Activities. She was released into the custody of her parents.

Suspect 2, a 14-year-old female was booked into Youth Service Center for Investigation of Assault.

On-duty officers posted at the school until the conclusion of the event.
