A wanted subject who was arrested yesterday afternoon added to his problems by assaulting deputies during the arrest.

On May 2 at 1:47 p.m., Deputy J.A. Hinson responded to an address on Frasier Drive for a disturbance. Upon arrival, he encountered Emmanuel Anyidoho, 44, of Stafford, in the front yard of the residence in an agitated state. Deputy Hinson determined that Anyidoho had an active warrant in Fairfax for attempting to disarm an officer.

Deputy A.W. Sypolt arrived to assist and the deputies informed Anyidoho he was under arrest. Anyidoho resisted the arrest and began grabbing at the equipment on the deputy’s duty belt. The deputies utilized their OC spray and physical control techniques to get Anyidoho into custody. Both deputies sustained minor scrapes during the arrest.

Anyidoho was charged with two counts of assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, and he was served the outstanding warrant. Additionally, Deputy Hinson obtained a warrant for assault based on the circumstances of the disturbance deputies were originally called for. Anyidoho was held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
