WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 35-year-old man has been arrested after authorities say he tried to assault police officers with a screwdriver at a Wichita hospital.

According to Sgt. Brian Sigman, officers responded to a call about trespassing at Via Christi St. Joseph just before 3 a.m. Saturday. Sigman said when officers made contact with the man near the emergency room, he pulled out a screwdriver from his pocket and wielded it “in an aggressive manner.”

Sigman said officers used a Taser to subdue the suspect and arrested him. No injuries were reported.

The suspect faces charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting and obstructing an arrest.
