The Weyburn Police Service dealt with a domestic situation last Tuesday which resulted in one man facing a charge seldom seen in Weyburn in recent years.
Police responded to the call and discovered one of the individuals involved in the situation was bleeding. Officers then transported them to the hospital for treatment.
Upon arriving at the hospital, the man became agitated, and angry towards the police, punching one of the officers. The officer sustained minor injuries, while the suspect was placed under arrest using physical force, and handcuffed.
After the medical examination, the man was then transported to cells.
He is facing one count of assaulting a peace officer.
