DANBURY, CT (WFSB) -

The Danbury Police Department has released the emergency calls in the assault of an officer in the Germantown neighborhood in June. 

Police said 20-year-old Pierre Elhayek was seen pacing up and down Germantown Road around 11 p.m. on June 30. 

A police officer was parked in a lot when Elhayek walked up to the cruiser and began banging on and kicking the car.

The officer got out of the car, thinking that Elhayek was trying to get his attention, but Elhayek then attacked the officer, hitting him on the side of the head and ear.

Police said Elhayek punched and kicked the officer in the head and body numerous times.

The officer lost his stun gun during the struggle and was unable to get to his portable radio.

He was finally able to get back inside the cruiser and then call for help.

Several officers arrived and took Elhayek into custody.

Elhayek was charged with second-degree assault, assault on a police officer, interfering with police, breach of peace and first-degree criminal mischief.

The next court appearance for Elhayek is on Aug. 25. It will be a pre-trial hearing. Elhayek is still being held on $300,00 bond.
