One man is in police custody charged with three counts of assaulting police officers, obscene language, resisting arrest and damage to Government property.
On Monday, officers were on mobile patrol along Enterprise Street, Chaguanas, when they were alerted to a fight taking place a short distance away.
When officers arrived on the scene they observed a 23-year old man man violently pulling the arm of a young woman.
The officers approached and identified themselves.
The officers then separated the man from the woman.
The man began behaving violently and using obscene language towards the officers.
He was cautioned by the police about his language but he persisted.
The officers attempted to restrain him and he became more violent and menacing, to the young woman and one of the officers in particular.
The officer used herself as a shield to protect the woman from the man.
The man flew into a rage and began bashing the rear windscreen of the police vehicle with his right hand until he shattered the glass.
Reinforcements were called in and the man was subdued.
The suspect, along with the young woman and the officers, were taken to the Chaguanas Health Centre.
He was later transferred to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex to seek further medical attention.
The man, of Enterprise Street, Longdenville is now in police custody charged with the offences.
