Shortly after midnight on Wednesday, police officers had to respond to a domestic incident in Roeser.

The police officers were responding to a call concerning an argument between a married couple. As the officers arrived, they immediately noticed that the man was inebriated and was becoming increasingly agitated.

Whilst the officers were present, the man insulted his wife and even threatened to kill her. He then told officers that he had a knife on his person.

As the officers were about to leave the flat with the wife and the couple's son, the man attacked the officers.

The couple had already argued earlier in the day, at which point the police had also been called.
