Manchester police say man punched, kicked officers while seeking medical assistance


MANCHESTER - Police say a man punched and kicked officers when they responded to a call for medical assistance for him.

Police said they responded to a call at 121 Eastern Ave. from 27-year-old Joshua Uncle's mom around 10:20 a.m. Thursday. According to his mother, Uncles was harming himself, police said.

Upon arrival, officers Beau Bernard and Michael Dunlap spoke with Uncle's mother about his unusual behavior.

Police said Uncles became agitated and uncooperative and refused to open the door of his apartment.

Dunlap convinced Uncles that he may need medical help, so Uncles opened the door and demanded to be handcuffed, police said. Uncles had self-inflicted wounds on his face at that time, police said.

Within seconds, Uncles punched the officer, police said. A brief struggle ensued and Uncles was placed into handcuffs, police said. Uncles then kicked Officer Bernard and continued to be combative, police said.

Uncles is charged with two counts of simple assault on a police officer, resisting arrest/detention and contempt of court for a previous arrest in June.

He will be arraigned in Manchester district court Friday.
