An attempted arrest turned violent Wednesday when a 16-year-old male allegedly assaulted an RCMP officer.

Halifax RCMP say they were first called to Cow Bay Road to investigate a property-damage complaint at 8 p.m. A woman reported that a rock was smashed through the window of her vehicle.

A suspect was located shortly afterwards during a vehicle stop, but police say when an officer tried to arrest him the suspect resisted. The man then punched the officer in the head several times before running away, according to police. He was later arrested and the officer was not injured.

The suspect has been charged with property damage, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest. He will appear in court in November.
