    A 44-year-old man was tased by police, after allegedly assaulting two officers.

    On October 26th, a team of officers responded to a report of a man armed with a weapon at Alexandra Settlement, Santa Flora.

    When they arrived at the scene, they saw the man walking and behaving in an aggressive, violent manner towards another person on the roadway.

    The suspect allegedly ignored the call to cease and desist, and allegedly began hitting two of the officers who attempted to restrain him.

    It was at this time that he was tased by WPC Clarke, allowing the officers to subdue and arrest him.

    The two officers sustained injuries during the melee and the TTPS says all parties subsequently received medical treatment.
