The officer contacted the WPS Communications Centre and requested assistance. He then followed the suspects to the area of Sterling Avenue and St. Anne’s Road, at which time he was assaulted, but was able to apprehend a male suspect. The other suspects fled and the officer was transported to hospital where he was treated and later released for injuries he sustained during the assault.
