2 police officers injured making arrest in North Seattle

Two Seattle police officers were injured Tuesday night while responding to a call of a man in mental crisis.

Around 6 p.m., the officers responded to a call from a woman who said her 37-year-old son, who may be suffering from schizophrenia, had left their home and was wandering the neighborhood, according to police.

A short time later, police received calls that a man matching his description had broken into a home in the 13900 block of 4th Avenue Northeast.

Officers found the man outside the home after he had armed himself with a clothes hanger and placed a set of keys between his fingers. As he advanced toward a group of teenagers, one of the officers placed himself between the man and the teens, according to police.

The man approached the officer and punched him in the neck, police said. The officer wrestled the man to the ground, and with the help of other officers was able to get him into custody.

The officer who was punched suffered a knee injury and a second officer injured his shoulder in the melee, police said. Both  were treated at Harborview Medical Center.

The man was booked into jail for investigation of assault and burglary.
