A Wisconsin man caused an officer to suffer injuries after he fled from police and resisted arrest before biting a second officer in Waukegan, prosecutors said.
Demetreon Akbar, 26, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer, two counts of resisting a peace officer causing injury and domestic battery.
The Waukegan Police Department responded on March 11 to a call of a domestic battery involving Akbar and a woman.
Officers met with the victim who reported that Akbar possibly had a firearm, according to Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Olaide Adeniran. Additional officers were called.
Officers learned the woman and Akbar had dinner and Akbar wanted to have sex with the victim but she declined.
Adeniran said Akbar threw water on the victim and began striking her multiple times in the face and head.
The incident was witnessed by a child and the victim left and called 911.
Officers attempted to arrest Akbar but he pulled away and ran before slipping in the mud, Adeniran said.
An officer grabbed Akbar and tackled him to the ground. Akbar continued resisting arrest and bit an officer on his knee, Adeniran said.
An officer who smashed his hand into a fence while struggling with Akbar suffered contusions and scraps.
Adeniran said Akbar was eventually arrested and escorted to a squad car when he became beligrent and started screaming.
Akbar allegedly spat on an officer after being taken into custody.
One officer was treated Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville and another officer later sought treatment.
Lake County Judge Christopher Lombardo ordered Akbar held on a $30,000 bond.
He remains held in the Lake County Jail and would need to post $3,000 cash in order to be released.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 5.
