Posted by wlpo on September 25, 2010

A Peru police officer was hurt this morning during a foot chase with a domestic battery suspect.

Peru Police took a call just after midnight regarding domestic trouble in the 2000 block of 1st Street.  Robert Marzian Jr. of Peru allegedly battered a woman, destroyed the home and was armed with a baseball bat.  Once police arrived, he fled on foot, leading police on a 20 minute chase thru backyards and around homes and garages.

During the pursuit, a 25 year old officer suffered a serious laceration and injury to his arm.  He was taken to IVCH.

Marzian Jr. meanwhile was taken to the county jail and charged with felony resisting arrest and domestic battery.
