A South Windsor man who was the subject of an active arrest warrant was spotted by West Hartford Police on Friday morning, and resisted arrest before being taken into custody without injury.
According to police, Abdulmonem Alsaleh, 45, of 45 Bramblebrae in South Windsor, was spotted by an officer in the area of 905 Farmington Ave. in West Hartford just before 10 a.m. Friday.
Police said that the patrol officer called for backup as he approached the suspect, who had an outstanding arrest warrant for third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, stemming from a Nov. 29, 2018, incident court records show.
The suspect “became physically resistant” as backup arrived, and he scuffled with both officers as additional police backup arrived at the scene.
Alsaleh attempted to gain entry into the convenience store at the Shell gas station at 905 Farmington Ave., but patrons held the front door closed so he could not get inside, police said.
According to police, Alsaleh was taken into custody by police without injury to any parties.
Alsaleh has been charged with violation of a protective order, interfering with a police officer, and breach of peace. His total bond is $7,500.
Alsaleh was scheduled to appear in court Friday.
