A Mansfield man has been indicted by the Richland County Grand Jury on charges of assaulting a peace officer.

Bryan Benjamin, 26, was indicted on two counts of felonious assault, harrassment with a bodily substance and obstructing official business. The charges stem from an incident that occurred Jan. 23 in the 400 block of East Cook Road.

Assistant prosecutor Cliff Murphy said officers were attempting to serve a failure-to-appear warrant from Mansfield Municipal Court to Benjamin. He said Benjamin stabbed one of the officers in the hand with a pocket knife.

The grand jury also indicted a Bellville woman on charges of nonsupport of dependents. Jennifer Wade, 26, is charged with nine counts for failing to pay support for 26 weeks in a two-year period for her three children.

Murphy said Wade owes $15,000.
