ANAHEIM, CALIF. (Oct. 27, 2018) – Two Anaheim Police Department (APD) officers were seriously injured during an attempted arrest of an assault and battery suspect. Both officers were transported to a local trauma center, where they are currently being treated. Post arrest, the suspect went into full cardiac arrest and was transported to a local hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

Around 8:40 am Saturday morning, officers were sent to an apartment complex in the 2200 block of W. Broadway regarding a male resident who appeared to be under the influence of narcotics and who allegedly assaulted an employee of the complex. Preliminary information indicates when the officers tried to take the suspect into custody, a physical altercation occurred. The officers called for an emergency response of additional officers. The suspect was eventually taken into custody, and within minutes went into full cardiac arrest. APD personnel performed CPR until paramedics arrived and transported the suspect to a local hospital. The suspect’s prognosis is not known at this time.

Due to the seriousness of the incident, concurrent investigations are being conducted by the APD Homicide Detail, the APD Major Incident Review Team (MIRT), and the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. Anyone who witnessed the altercation is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS, or by email at www.occrimestoppers.org.
