Albany--An Albany man sits behind bars after assaulting an Albany police officer.

Around 3 PM Saturday, a female officer responded to the 200 block of east Broad Avenue regarding a suspicious person in the area.

When the officer questioned 49-year-old Dennis Hawkins, he assaulted her before fleeing the scene.

The officer then chased Hawkins for several blocks where he hid beneath a house.

He eventually came out and was arrested near the 400 block of Bonnyview Avenue.

Hawkins is charged with obstruction of officers and possession of marijuana.

The female officer was hit in the eye but did not receive any serious injuries.
