YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Two Youngstown police officers say they were sprayed with Mace as they were arresting two women following a dispute in a West Side neighborhood.

A woman from North Evanston Avenue called dispatchers Tuesday afternoon to report that she was being harassed by women who were visiting a neighbor's home.

After officers arrived, they say 27-year-old Lateka Madison of Delaware Avenue came out of the neighbor's home two times and threatened to assault someone at the home next door.

Police say when they went into the neighboring home, other people inside the house including 39-year-old Lashonda Hall of Ridge Avenue tried to prevent officers from arresting Madison.

An officer says someone knocked a pair of handcuffs out of his hand.

According to the police report, Madison and Hall hit, kicked and pushed the officers before someone sprayed both of the officers with Mace.

Police say although they finally placed both women in custody, a man who was in the house escaped before he could be arrested.

Both women were booked into the county jail on charges of assault on a police officer and resisting arrest. Madison is also charged with disorderly conduct.
