NS Police Officer Hurt in Scuffle

August 30, 2014


A Norfolk Southern police officer in Cleveland was knocked unconscious on Wednesday afternoon after he and a burglary suspect fell from a bridge.

The officer, whose name was not given in media accounts, found a man trying to break into a rail car near Broadway and Harvard avenues at about 4 p.m. The men struggled and both fell about 14 feet off the bridge.

Paramedics took both men to MetroHealth Medical Center. The officer, 27, suffered head injuries and lost consciousness. The burglary suspect, 54, was in stable condition with multiple abrasions.

An NS spokesman confirmed that one of its police officers was involved in the incident, but said more details should come from Cleveland police. However, Cleveland police did not provide details of the incident.
