Police: Manchester man charged with punching police officer

MANCHESTER — A city man faces charges including assault and resisting arrest after police said he punched an officer Sunday.

Dustin Rousseau, 30, was shouting profanities and ran toward a front porch on Goffe Street about 5:40 p.m. Sunday to assault a woman standing in the doorway, police said in a release.

Officer Jason Soucy tried to speak with Rousseau before he charged toward the door and followed him up the porch stairs, police said.

Soucy tried to gain control of Rousseau, who turned around and punched the officer in the face, police said.

Soucy handcuffed Rousseau as he continued to struggle and arrested him on charges of assault on a police officer, criminal mischief and resisting arrest.

Rousseau was scheduled to appear in Manchester circuit court Monday.
