SALEM, Va. (AP) -- A 92-year-old man faces charges of attacking another man and a police officer at a Salem assisted living center.

Robert H. Tolliver is charged with malicious wounding, assaulting a police officer and property damage.

Salem police Sgt. Mike Crawley tells The Roanoke Times ( ) that police went to the center last week in response to an assault. The officer found a man who had lacerations to his head and face.

Tolliver is accused of striking the officer and damaging a piece of police equipment as he was being arrested. The officer wasn't injured.

Tolliver was being held without bond Wednesday at the Western Virginia Regional Jail.

Crawley says the other man was treated for non-life threatening injuries at a hospital and released the next day. His name hasn't been released.
