Officer being attacked in Le Roy
An officer is apparently being attacked by people at 21 Maple Ave., Le Roy.
Multiple law enforcement units are responding. The location is between North and Church streets in the Village of Le Roy.
UPDATE 5:19 p.m. (by Billie): A female in front of the house is armed with a knife. A man has been pinned down by police. An officer on scene says "Keep sending all units. Multiple people are going to be arrested."
UPDATE 5:25 p.m.: At least three arrests will be made. Manpower called to this point is sufficient.
UPDATE 5:27 p.m.: Law enforcement has the scene under control.
UPDATE 5:31 p.m.: Sheriff's deputies from Wyoming and Orleans counties are staged at the county line just in case they are needed. But an officer says things have calmed down. Suspects are in custody.
UPDATE 5:59 p.m.: One patient is being transported to UMMC.
UPDATE 6:54 p.m.: The Le Roy assignment is back in service.
UPDATE 6:10 p.m. (Info. from Howard at the scene): The incident allegedly began when a Sheriff's deputy arrived at 21 Maple Ave. to serve an arrest warrant on a male, who allegedly became uncooperative. Then the suspect's father allegedly interjected himself into the matter and the suspect's mother allegedly grabbed a knife and threatened the deputy with it. One of the individuals was taken to UMMC for a health complaint not directly related to the incident on Maple Avenue. When feasible, that individual will be transported to county jail. The two other people involved are already in custody.
UPDATE 6:29 p.m.: The individual taken to UMMC is the father.
UPDATE 6:54 p.m.: Le Roy is back in service.
Just goes to show everyone, that even in our relatively quiet rural setting, deputies and officers can walk into a lion's den at anytime, often without warning.
Thank God, no one was hurt whether it be law enforcement or suspect.
Mark, that was among the thoughts I had on my drive out to Le Roy -- and that this is one of those rare times that it's good we have the manpower in our multiple law enforcement agencies to respond quickly with a show of force.
