GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Three Greenville police officers were assaulted over the weekend when responding to a dispute call.

According to the Greenville Police Department, the three officers responded to Sullivan Street where a suspect “refused to leave the location.”

The suspect has been identified as 55-year-old Richard Rosemond.

Officers said when they approached Rosemond, he became aggressive and told the officers he wanted to fight.

“They tried to detain him, especially with his behavior and how he was exhibiting,” Sgt. Johnathan Bragg of the Greenville Police Department said. “At that point, it was a physical altercation that ensued between the officers and him trying to get him under control.”

“Two officers were punched in the face,” Bragg added. “One of those officers had to have stitches as a result of it. She’s doing fine now. The other officer was bit multiple times, breaking the skin. He’s had to receive treatment.”

Rosemond was arrested and charged with three counts of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and three counts of assaulting a police officer.

The officers received medical treatment for their injuries and were released from medical care.
