A Northwest District officer suffered a broken ankle Tuesday in a scuffle with two 19-year-old men who resisted arrest after being loud and abusive on Kenmore Avenue, according to Buffalo police reports.
Officer Carl Lundin was injured in arresting Derek Crowley of Rogers Avenue and Robert Hickey of Kenmore Avenue at about 3:45 a.m. The two are accused of using obscene language and refusing to comply with officers' requests.
Crowley was charged with second-degree assault; both men face charges of resisting arrest and four counts of disorderly conduct.
Man attacked by three
at East Ferry and Bailey
An Erb Street man told police that three men tried to run him down at East Ferry Street and Bailey Avenue Tuesday before they beat him, stuck a handgun in his mouth and threatened to kill him.
The victim was walking in the intersection about 1:50 a.m. when the three men tried to run him down, he told police. After he jumped onto the hood, the three men got out of the vehicle and repeatedly punched and kicked him.
One of the men then pulled out a silver automatic handgun and threatened him with it. The victim was taken to Erie County Medical Center for treatment of bruises, swelling and pain.
