MASSAPEQUA, N.Y. (AP) — Nassau County police say a 26-year-old man who was refused entry to a bar slashed an officer's cheek with scissors.

Police responded to McCann's Bar and Grill Saturday night after they say he damaged a windshield wiper on a party bus parked across the street from the bar after he wasn't allowed inside. Police found him walking a few blocks away. When they tried to talk to him, police say he pulled out a pair of scissors and slashed. They say he also bit a sergeant.

The man, Robert Savage, was taken into custody and hospitalized for an unrelated illness. He was arrested on charges of aggravated assault on a police officer and weapon possession. It wasn't immediately clear whether he had an attorney who could comment on the accusations.
