LEBANON, Pa. (WHTM) -

An officer was injured last week after a man resisted arrest in Lebanon on December 16. 

When the officer attempted to arrest the suspect, the man picked up the toddler he had been walking with and ran. The suspect jumped a fence, fell and continued running.

The officer was cut on the hand and knee while pursuing the man.

The suspect got away but was arrested the next day and charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest and endangering the welfare of children.  He was arraigned and placed in the Lebanon County Correctional Facility on $25,000 bail.
