PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A man accused of domestic assault was arrested after police say he kicked an officer in the groin.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1LkPQ8g) officers responded to a home Saturday on Steere Avenue where a woman said 24-year-old Ross Amos had punched her repeatedly in the face and broken a ceramic plate over her head.

Police found Amos sitting in a locked car on Hyatt Street. An officer attempted to pull him out through an open window.

Police say they used pepper spray because Amos continued to resist and he kicked an officer in the groin during the struggle.

Amos faces charges of domestic felony assault, simple assault and resisting arrest.

It’s unclear whether Amos has an attorney who could comment.

Online records don’t list a phone number for Amos.
