After a canvass of the area, officers observed the subject walking on Clocks Boulevard and Ellen Street. When officers attempted to question the individual, the subject began struggling with the officer and sergeant.    
 
The subject then produced a pair of scissors and slashed the officers’ cheek and attempted to stab him in the neck. The sergeant was bitten and sustained injury to her back, neck and shoulder after being thrown to the ground. The officer then deployed his Electronic Control Device and was able to place defendant Robert Savage, 26, under arrest.

Defendant Savage is being charged with Aggravated Assault Upon a Police Officer, Criminal Possession of a Weapon 4th Degree, Resisting Arrest and 2 counts of Assault 2nd Degree. He will be arraigned as soon as medically practical.
 
A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
