A Rochester man is facing charges following an incident involving two police officers.
Rochester Police say the landlord of a property on Lake Avenue called officers to remove a man who regularly sleeps in the hallways of the property.
When officers attempted to take the man – Anthony Giles – into custody, police say he flung his arms, pinning the officers against the wall. According to police, Giles then fought with the officers, tumbled down a set of stairs and then ran away from the apartment building.
Two officers were treated for contusions; a third officer was uninjured.
Giles was later taken into custody and charged with assault, criminal obstruction of breathing and resisting arrest.
