Pittsburgh Police officers from Zone 2 responded to a call for a disorderly male who was possibly suffering from some type of psychiatric issue and/or drug/alcohol intoxication on the 2800 block of Webster Avenue before 8:00 p.m. 

When officers arrived on scene they were confronted by a male who was not wearing shoes or socks. He became extremely violent with police and kicked a recruit officer in the face while resisting arrest.

The officer was transported to Mercy Hospital in stable condition. He suffered a laceration to his cheek and underwent treatment.

The male suspect was also transported to the hospital where he is undergoing evaluation. Once he is medically cleared he faces several possible charges.

The investigation continues.
