Two San Jose police officers and a male adult were injured Wednesday on Park Avenue near central San Jose after the man refused requests by tenants of an apartment to leave, a police spokesman said. The man, who is not being identified, was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on suspicion of assaulting the police officers, according to police spokesman Officer Albert Morales. Officers had responded at 6:35 p.m. Wednesday to a call about a disturbance at an apartment in the 1200 block of Park Avenue at Meridian Avenue, Morales reported.
The tenants reported that a man known to them was in the apartment but did not comply with their demands that he depart the premises, police said. The officers had the tenants leave the building and tried to arrest the man for trespassing when he began to physically assault them, according to Morales.
One of the officers was transported to a hospital for treatment for injuries suffered in the altercation and the other officer was treated for minor injuries at the scene and released. The suspect was also taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries he suffered during his arrest and police later booked him into the county jail.
