The victim told several officers who responded to the scene at about 7 a.m. that the suspect had been trespassing in the complex’s garage. When she asked him to leave he assaulted her, according to Whent.
The responding officers, who were working the overnight shift, took some initial information from the victim but couldn’t find the suspect and then left the area, he said.
The female officer, who was beginning her day shift, did a follow-up interview with the victim. As she got into her patrol car to drive away the suspect, who she recognized from the victim’s description, walked in front of her car in the 200 block of MacArthur Boulevard, Whent said.
The officer got out of her car but “was immediately attacked by the suspect with a metal chain that he was swinging at her” and hitting her with, he said.
