A 22-year old Burlington man is facing serious charges after attacking two Halton Police officers.
Police were called to a family disturbance at a home on Plains Road Thursday afternoon and upon arrival, were immediately attacked by a man armed with a knife.
One officer was pushed to the ground and stabbed in the head and the other, while trying to intervene, was bitten on the arm. A family member was also injured in the scuffle; all are recovering from their injuries.
The suspect has been remanded into custody on charges of attempted murder, assault causing bodily harm and assault police. He remains in Hospital where a psychiatric assessment is ongoing.
He’s scheduled to appear for a bail hearing on Monday in Milton.
