Milwaukee cop recovering after beating from suspect

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Milwaukee police officer Dwain Monteihl is recovering, after a suspect kicked him and punched him in the head.

It happened Monday afternoon in a north side neighborhood where Monteihl and another officer were on patrol.

Officials said they saw two men acting suspiciously – and both ran away when the officers tried talking to them.

The officers caught up with the pair, and one of the suspects reportedly tried to grab Monteihl’s gun while hitting and kicking him in the face. He was taken to a hospital with a broken eye socket and bleeding behind the eye.

The other officer was not hurt.

Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn praised the officers for using restraint. Flynn said they could have shot the man who was trying to steal Monteihl’s gun.
