SAN ANTONIO - A San Antonio police officer responding to a 911 call for help ended up being the one seeking medical treatment.
Police say a neighbor called police after a man was bleeding from self-inflicted injuries.
But when an officer responded investigators say the injured man and his uncle both turned on the officer.
According to a witness who did not want to be identified, “The individual had cuts on his arms or on his hands he had blood and the officer was trying to control that individual”.
That’s when the officer was either scratched or bitten by one man. Both were eventually arrested. They could face assault charges.
Investigators believe one of the men may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The officer is expected to be okay.
