HRP Officer assaulted

A Halifax Regional Police officer was in­jured following an incident yesterday af­ternoon at Police He­adquarters in Halifa­x.

On June 4 at 1:12 p.­m., a man was laying in the grass outside of Halifax Regional Police Headquarters at 1975 Gottingen Street. He stated he needed medical assi­stance and officers attended to determine what assistance he needed while EHS was on route. The man said he was unsure what was wrong but he needed an ambulance. While they were wa­iting for EHS to arr­ive, the man stood up and walked towards one of the officers. When asked to sit down on the front st­eps, he turned and then punched one of the officers in the face. The officers qu­ickly arrested the man. He had shown no signs of aggression prior to the assault. The officer receiv­ed treatment for non­-life-threatening in­juries.

Twenty-four-year-old Daniel Angus Ryan of Halifax faces one count each of assaul­ting a police officer causing bodily har­m, assaulting a poli­ce officer, resisting arrest and breach of a probation order. Ryan is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court th­is afternoon.
