A woman is facing charges after Nassau County police said she assaulted officers early Saturday morning.
Nassau County police said officers were dispatched for a disturbance on Hempstead Turnpike near the intersection of Oakdale Avenue in West Hempstead where they discovered Angel Alexander-Adolphe, 23, and an unnamed 25-year-old man in a physical altercation.
As officers arrested Alexander-Adolphe, police said she resisted arrest, which caused an arresting officer to experience "substantial pain to his left knee and leg," a news release said. Both Alexander-Adolphe and the officer were transported to a hospital for treatment.
After being released from the hospital, police transported Alexander-Adolphe to the Fifth Precinct, during which police said she kicked an officer who was seated near her, causing "substantial pain to the [officer's] right hand and wrist." The woman continued flailing and kicking, injuring another officer's right calf and ankle, police said.
Alexander-Adolphe, who police said was homeless, was taken back to a hospital for an assessment. The injured officers were also taken to a hospital for treatment.
She was charged with three counts of second-degree assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and two counts of second-degree harassment. She is scheduled to be arraigned on Sunday at First District Court.
