COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police have arrested a central Ohio assault suspect accused of repeatedly hitting an officer in the face, head and arms with the blade of a large saw.

Police say the Columbus officer was attacked Friday when he found the man hiding in a garage after a pursuit. Police say the injured officer was treated at a hospital and released.

The suspect, a 22-year-old Columbus man, was being held in jail on charges of felonious assault and assaulting a peace officer.

Police said he had been sought initially because he was suspected of firing a handgun at his children's mother as she drove away after a fight. A bullet hit the vehicle, but there was no report of any injuries in that situation.
