Officers injured breaking up party in Muhlenberg Township

MUHLENBERG TWP., Pa. - Police say two officers were injured after breaking up a rowdy party in Muhlenberg Township.

Police say they responded to a complaint about a loud party early Sunday morning at an apartment building in the 2900 block of Kutztown Road.

Officials say 49-year-old Juan Pagan, who lives in the apartment, was handcuffed after aggressively moving toward an officer.

While the officers were removing Pagan from the party, police say they were attacked by another man, 26-year-old Allister Dempster.

They say Pagan broke free and joined in on the attack.

Officials say one officer suffered a broken hand and another sprained his wrist.

Officers from several other departments were called in to help.
