Nacogdoches Police officers arrested a 19-year-old man for allegedly assaulting a public servant and resisting arrest Tuesday.

Christopher Michael Benda, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a third-degree felony charge of assaulting a public servant and a Class A misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest, search, and transport. No bail has been set at this time.

According to the police report, an NPD officer responded to Austin Place Apartments in the 3200 block of North Street in reference to a 911 call about a known subject trying to force his way into an apartment. When the officer arrived on scene, the complainant opened the door.

At that point, Benda allegedly started to attack the complainant. The officer intervened, and then Benda started to assault the officer., according to the police report. When NPD officers tried to take Benda into custody, he allegedly resisted them.

Further investigation revealed that the complainant had been assaulted by Benda before the officers arrived on scene, the police report stated. However, the victim did not wish to file charges.
