Posted: Updated:

DANSVILLE, N.Y. – A Dansville police officer was injured after he attempted to separate a violent juvenile from his victim.

On Sunday at 2:15 a.m. the New York State Police, Dansville Police Department and Livingston County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to a call about an out of control 15-year old in a vehicle parked at the truck stop off Exit 5 on Interstate 390 in Dansville, NY.

When police arrived, they observed a male juvenile biting and striking a female, later determined to be his aunt.

During an attempt to remove the suspect from the vehicle, a Dansville Police Officer was punched in the head and suffered a concussion.

The 15-year old was eventually removed from the vehicle and transported to Noyes Hospital by Dansville Ambulance for evaluation. The Aunt was also taken to Noyes Hospital for treatment.

It was determined the suspect had taken bath salts which was the cause of the violent behavior. The officer was treated at Highland Hospital and released.

The investigation is continuing and charges are pending.
