WARREN, Ohio (WYTV ) – A Warren man has filed an excessive force complaint against a police detective during an arrest last week.
In the April 22 complaint, Frederick Dengg, 24, reports that Detective David Weber bashed him against a tree and fence and then threw him to the ground, where he punched him in the face, neck and back. Dengg said while on the ground he complained about shards of glass cutting him, but the officer deliberately grinded him into the glass, requiring him to get 10 staples to close the wound.
According to police, Dengg had to be chased down by the officer after he ran away after a traffic stop on Belvedere Street S.E. on April 21 while officers were trying to get his information.
Dengg is charged with resisting arrest and obstructing official business. He also is facing theft charges out of Bazetta Township after police said he stole a dog from a car in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
We tried to contact Dengg, but he hung up on us.
