CORNWALL – A Cornwall man is facing charges of assaulting police and resisting arrest after a scuffle Thursday night.

City police were called to a Prince Arthur Street home for a family dispute just before midnight.

Police say during their investigation a man attempted to spit on two officers and managed to bite one officer on the hand.

The officer’s condition is not known.

The man, 21, was arrested, charged, and then released with a promise to appear in court Dec. 30.

Since it was a domestic dispute investigation, police did not release the man’s name in order to protect the identity of the victims.
