Connecticut Man Attacked a Female Police Officer

The Middletown Police Department responded after they received a complaint about noise and breaking glass in a residential street. Detective Karli Travis, who runs the Middletown Police Cadet Program, was the first police officer who responded to the call.

In a published article in FOX News, the female police officer approached Winston Tate, 52 years old and the suspect, when she noticed that he was bringing a hammer. She tried to de-escalate the situation and told the Tate to drop the object to the ground.

However, the body camera revealed that he violently attacked the police officer instead of cooperating. Tate repeatedly beat her using the hammer and that was the time that the female police officer takes out her handgun and begins firing the suspect.
