A New York man is accused of assaulting Greenwich police officers while trying to escape from authorities who were investigating him as a suspect in vandalism.
Police said several officers were in the Cos Cob area Sunday after receiving reports that 33-year-old Robert Moran, of Glendale, New York, vandalized a residence and they told him he was under arrest and was ordered to lie on the ground.
Moran instead tried to escape and several officers brought him to the ground, where he continued to resist, but was placed in handcuffs.
Three officers and Moran were injured and police said he made threats to the officers during the struggle and after, according to police.
Doctors at Greenwich Hospital treated Moran for injuries and he remains in their care. Police said the injuries are not life-threatening.
The injured officers were treated at the emergency room and released.
When Moran return to the Greenwich Police Department, police plan to charge him with disorderly conduct, criminal mischief in the first degree, robbery in the third degree, three counts of risk of injury to a minor, two counts of interfering with an emergency call, interfering with an officer, two counts of assault on a police officer and two counts of threatening in the second degree.
Bond will be set at $100,000 and Moran is scheduled to appear in court on May 16.
