Worcester Police Officer Bitten by Suspect During Attempted Arrest

Friday, June 15, 2018

 

A Worcester police officer was bitten in the arm by a suspect during a chase and struggle in the area of Green Street on Tuesday afternoon. 

The suspect, Brandon Carrion, 19, was eventually arrested and charged with operating with a suspended license, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and assault and battery on a police officer.  

The Incident

On June 12 at about 1:15 p.m., a Worcester Police Officer was on patrol in the downtown area. While in the area of Green St, the officer saw a brown Ford Escape stopped at the red light under the Green St bridge. The officer recognized the driver of the Ford, Carrion, of 25 Hooper St, and knew that Carrion did not have a valid driver’s license. The officer activated his emergency lights and attempted to conduct a motor vehicle stop on Church St.

As the officer approached the driver’s side of the car, he saw Carrion reach across the passenger’s side. Carrion climbed out of the passenger’s side window and began to run away. The officer gave him multiple commands to stop, and chased him. He caught up to Carrion, who was pulling away and trying to escape, and was able to take him to the ground.

While on the ground, Carrion grabbed the officer’s right forearm and bit it with so much force that the teeth broke the skin. As the officer pulled his arm out of Carrion’s mouth, Carrion was able to get up and continued running towards Front St.

Carrion was eventually apprehended by an officer working a detail at Union Station on the second floor of the Union Station parking garage.

The officer was transported to the hospital.
