On March 17th, 2015 Officers were dispatched to the 700 building at 350 Blackwood-Clementon Road for the report of a suspicious vehicle parked in the area with a male sleeping in the driver’s seat.

During the course of the investigation the officer woke the male and due to his failure to comply with the officer’s instructions, he was asked to exit the vehicle. Shortly after exiting the vehicle, the suspect assaulted the officer and after a brief struggle the suspect fled on foot. The suspect was quickly apprehended and taken into custody by the officer without further incident. Neither the suspect nor officer were injured during the incident.
