Omaha police say a 20-year-old man was arrested Tuesday night after he bit the hand of an officer who was investigating a theft case.
Police said Andrel Harris was arrested about 8:30 p.m. at 30th and Parker Streets.
Officers had responded to a radio call in which a theft victim said his iPad was stolen Monday night. The theft victim found his stolen item for sale on Craigslist, and he contacted the seller to meet him. Harris arrived at the meeting, spotted the officers and ran. During his arrest, Harris struggled with the officers before biting one of them.
Harris was arrested on suspicion of robbery and assault on an officer.
