One Durham Police officer suffered a broken nose and another a bite wound after being called to a family dispute in Bowmanville.

Police had responded to a call near Longworth Avenue and Bowmanville Avenue about an “agitated” woman attacking family members around  8:30 p.m on Sept 10. Police allege that when the officers tried to arrest the woman, she became “extremely violent.”

Officers say they had to use a taser on the woman to subdue her.

The woman faces two counts of assault, two counts of assault against a peace officer causing bodily harm and three counts of assault to resist arrest.

She is being held in an area hospital for an assessment.
