The Bethany Police Department has released the names of the officer, who was injured Tuesday morning and the suspect authorities say attacked him.

Officer Zack Zamudio was called to the Jasper Garden Apartments in the 2500 block of North Rockwell about 9:15 a.m. on a complaint of a tenant causing problems in the office, according to police. When Zamudio arrived the person involved was no longer in the office, investigators said.

Chrystal fled the scene and was apprehended soon after, officers said.
