A 14 year old youth was arrested at a school yesterday after assaulting an officer.
A member of SPS’s School Resource Unit was attending to the school in the 1900 block of Preston Avenue South on an unrelated matter at approximately 11:00 a.m., May 14, 2018. Before leaving the school, the officer was made aware of a student who was in a vulnerable state and possibly violent. When that student was located, he fled and a foot chase ensued. It eventually ended in a school stairwell. While attempting to place the student under arrest, the student struck the officer several times before being subdued and taken into custody.
The 14 year old male is charged with Assaulting a Peace Officer.
