A 21-year-old man is in custody for allegedly assaulting an officer and damaging a police vehicle during his arrest in Palolo on Wednesday for burglary.

The incident started at about 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday when the suspect went to a friend's home in Palolo with a knife and made comments about killing someone.

The suspect locked himself in the home, broke into an adjoining store and ransacked it, police said.

He initially refused to leave after officers arrived on scene.

But the man's friend arrived and convinced him to come out.

While officers were arresting the man, he allegedly assaulted an officer and damaged a police vehicle, police said.

Police arrested the suspect on suspicion of burglary, assaulting an officer and criminal property damage.

I laughed at the same thing! I'm getting used to the poor writing and editing of this newspaper. It's actually quite sad and embarrassing.

Actually, police said it was ramsacked. The writer is only writing what the police said. But you're right, I'm laughing right along with you.

Was edited by the time you got hold the article, meaning staff is reading your responses. Good to know it not just automatically censored for use of words not condoned or acceptable for print media.
