A Sunnyside police patrol vehicle was damaged yesterday (Sunday) when a suspect struggled with an officer during an arrest at Jack in the Box.
Sgt. Joey Glossen, public information officer, said the suspect resisted arrest and attempted to flee officers after they were called to the local eatery for a disturbance there.
Emmanuel Rivera, 23, of Sunnyside allegedly was inside the Jack in the Box restaurant, causing a disturbance at approximately 11 a.m.
Glossen said an employee phoned police because Rivera was yelling and threatening employees. He allegedly went beyond the serving counter into the area where food is prepared.
He eventually left the eatery and an employee locked the doors to prevent him from re-entering.
Police arrived on scene and attempted to take Rivera into custody. That's when police say he resisted officers and a struggle ensued.
A police cruiser sustained some damage in the altercation.
Glossen said it was later determined Rivera was also a suspect in an earlier domestic assault call.
Requested charges for Rivera include assault fourth degree domestic violence, malicious mischief third degree domestic violence, violation of a no-contact order, harassment, resisting arrest, malicious mischief third degree and criminal trespassing second degree.
