As officers went up the stairs to the third-floor property the aggressor allegedly emerged from behind a column on the landing, armed with 15 centimetre-long scissors, and went for them, injuring one of the policemen in the face, upper part of the chest and back.
Although not seriously hurt, the officer was taken to the provincial capital’s Torrecardenas hospital for treatment for his injuries.
The other two officers proceeded to detain the 30-year old, who reportedly put up such a resistance, even punching one of the policemen in the eye, they had to call for reinforcements.
