A Jersey City police officer was injured Sunday afternoon while restraining a man believed to be  who escaped from an ambulance while bleeding profusely from his arm, The Jersey Journal reports.
The officer, who complained of back, neck and head pain after falling to the ground with the man, was treated and released from Jersey City Medical Center-Barnabas Health last night, Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.
Police responded to a Van Nostrand Avenue home between Rugters and Ocean avenues at 4:25 p.m. on a call of a street fight with a male stabbed. Inside the home, police found a 22-year-old man bleeding heavily from a laceration on his left forearm and noted that “it was apparent” the man was under the influence of PCP, according to a police report.
While waiting for EMS to respond, the man became combative and “had to be secured,” the report states.  Police then responded to a home across the street, where a man reported that his 15-year-old daughter called him 10 minutes earlier and said the injured man from the other house had “touched her butt,” the report states.
The girl’s father told police he approached the man and asked if he had indeed touched his daughter. The man said “no” but took an aggressive stance and started to fight with the girl’s father, the report indicates.
The police report does not provide any details on the ensuing fight, but the girl’s father said the other man walked east on Van Nostrand after the altercation and punched a red Nissan Altima before walking into the aforementioned home, according to the report.
Police found blood on the ground in front of a Van Nostrand Avenue home, as well as blood on three cars. Officers were then informed that while being transported to Jersey City Medical Center, the injured man released himself from the gurney and ran down the street, still bleeding heavily, police said. Several officers responded and restrained him, during which one officer was injured, the report states.

No charges have yet been filed against the injured man but an investigation of the incident is ongoing.
