Man charged with assaulting police officer

Mill Woods Two cousins are facing charges after a police officer was allegedly grabbed and struck in the chest during an arrest Wednesday afternoon in Mill Woods.

Police say a southeast division officer was stopping two males who were allegedly riding bicycles without helmets near 28 Avenue and 86 Street and he later discovered that one of them had outstanding warrants.

As the city cop tried to arrest the male, the second male got off his bike and attacked him while the first male took off, police allege.

The officer was able to gain control of his alleged attacker.

Another male was arrested while he was trying to hop a chain-link fence that surrounded a nearby parking lot, police said.

Kevin Robert Simmons, 18, is charged with assaulting a peace officer and two counts of obstruction.
Daniel Robert Simons, 18, is charged with escaping lawful custody and was arrested on three outstanding warrants.
