Colorado Springs, Colorado - A female Colorado Springs officer was brutally attacked after responding to a call Monday evening.
11 News reports that the suspect walked into Specialty Sports & Supply and demanded guns and ammo. The employees told him no, and then the man said that he was going to go outside and get his own gun and then come back. The employees than called Colorado Springs Police Department.
Officers contacted the man in the parking lot. The suspect sucker-punched a female officer, beat her, and then stomped on her face while she was on the ground.
"It really happened so fast that he hit her like 10 times and kicked her at least twice that I saw," an anonymous witness told News 11. "I was shaking. He hit her hard, and the way he sucker punched her, I mean it was like he was trying to do more than hurt her."
The suspect was eventually taken into custody. His charges have not been released.
The injured officer was hospitalized after the attack for broken bones, facial, and hand injuries. She has since been discharged from the hospital and is recovering at home.
