A Salina man was arrested late Wednesday morning on multiple requested charges that included assault and battery on law enforcement officers.

Salina Police Lieutenant James Feldman said this morning that a neighbor in a duplex heard banging on the other side of a common wall and went next door to investigate. There he saw Donovan Green, 23, of Salina, banging on the wall.

The incident occurred at approximately 11:45 a.m.  Wednesday in the 500 block of W. Walnut Street.

The neighbor went back to his apartment and Green allegedly entered the apartment with a baseball bat, swinging it at the man, Feldman said. The man was able to duck out of the way, however, the bat put a hole in a wall.

A scuffle ensued between the two and the man was able to push Green out the front door, Feldman said. Green then allegedly broke a glass on the door.

When officers arrived, Green allegedly approached them in a threatening manner and there was a struggle as they attempted to take him into custody. A Saline County Sheriff's deputy arrived and helped them. Green allegedly battered both officers and attempted to batter the deputy, Feldman said.

Green was arrested on the following requested charges, Feldman said.

‚óŹAggravated burglary

‚óŹAggravated assault

‚óŹInterference with law enforcement officers

‚óŹTwo counts of battery on a law enforcement officer

‚óŹAssault of a law enforcement officer

Damage to the wall and the door was estimated at $350.
