Officer assaulted in Orange County?

ORANGE COUNTY — Someone apparently assaulted a California Highway Patrol officer with a deadly weapon Sunday, however CHP officials provided no details.
According to police radio traffic, the officer was assaulted about 8 p.m. in the area of Tonner Canyon Road and Brea Canyon Road, just south of the Los Angeles County line.
A radio broadcast sent to warn surrounding law enforcement agencies of the incident indicated some type of weapon was used against the officer, and that two suspects fled northbound on Brea Canyon Road toward Diamond Bar in a white Acura.
A dispatcher at the CHP’s Orange County Communications Center referred all inquiries to a public information officer whose answering machine stated was not on duty.
The dispatcher said there was no other way of releasing information and advised checking back in the morning or whenever a formal press release is issued.
