A Perry teenager allegedly assaulted a Perry Police Department Officer Sunday night after the vehicle the youth was in entered the ditch.
Axel Vladimir Riquelme Ibarra, 18, of 1615 Second St., Perry, was charged with assault on persons in certain occupations causing bodily injury.
The incident began about 8 p.m. near the intersection of Second and Park streets in Perry, where an officer of the Perry Police Department responded to a report of a vehicle in the ditch “with what were believed to be juveniles standing around it,” according to court records.
The officer made contact with Riquelme Ibarra and two juveniles.
While running their names, the officer “heard a loud bang coming from the vehicle in the ditch” and saw Riquelme Ibarra “climb on top of the vehicle, and began kicking the windshield of the vehicle,” according to court records.
The officer yelled “Axel, knock it off,” and Riquelme Ibarra allegedly took up “a windshield wiper blade that he broke off of the vehicle” and ran at the officer “while yelling” threats.
A brief struggle ensued, during which the officer assisted Riquelme Ibarra to the ground and placed him in handcuffs but not before the officer sustained “multiple injuries to (his) arms and legs,” according to court records.
Riquelme Ibarra is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $2,000 cash or surety bond. He is scheduled for arraignment Aug. 26 in Dallas County District Court.
