PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Authorities have accused a man of biting two Philadelphia police officers.

Police say the officers approached the man suspected of breaking into a car around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Chief Inspector Scott Small says the man punched, kicked and head-butted the officers before biting their hands and arms. Small says the skin was broken so the male and female officers were taken to a hospital so their wounds could be thoroughly cleaned.

The 32-year-old suspect faces aggravated assault and resisting arrest charges. His name has not been released.
