Sherwood police officer assaulted in Safeway parking lot

Sherwood Police arrested a man after he allegedly struck a police officer in a Safeway parking lot on Monday afternoon.

Police were called to Safeway, 20685 S.W. Roy Rogers Road, at about 1:45 p.m. after receiving a report of a distressed dog left in a vehicle.

As officers spoke with a nearby witness, the dog's owner arrived on the scene after exiting a nearby store.

The owner, identified as Jeffrey Hagg, 54, was agitated and aggressive, police said. He got into an argument with one of the officers, pushing him in the chest and at one point allegedly striking the officer in the head when officers attempted to take him into custody.

During the arrest, Hagg received injuries to his face and head, Sherwood police said.

Both Hagg and the officer were treated for their wounds at a local hospital.

Hagg is charged with assaulting a public safety officer, disorderly conduct and harassment. He was lodged in the Washington County Jail.

Hagg's dog was released to a family member at the scene, police said.
