OAKLAND, Calif. — Two Oakland police officers were hospitalized Tuesday morning after they were attacked by a domestic violence suspect, authorities said.

Police said a loaded gun was found on the suspect after other officers responded and helped subdue him.

The suspect’s name was not released, nor were the names of the two male officers. The officers suffered cuts and bruises, one being injured more seriously than the other. Both were treated and released.

The suspect, who was tased, was taken to a hospital for evaluation, but officials said he was slated to be released later in the day.

The confrontation happened about 9:50 a.m. Tuesday at a house in the 1100 block of 89th Avenue in East Oakland.

Officer Johnna Watson said a woman called police, saying her ex-boyfriend was pounding on the front door while holding a gun and making verbal threats. The woman would not let the man inside.

When the two officers arrived, they saw the suspect outside the home and gave him directions and commands that he ignored before physically attacking them, Watson said.

The officers were unable to restrain the man and radioed for assistance. Other officers responded, and the man was finally subdued after being tased, police said.
