Dasher and Wimbish refused to go and alledgedly began attacking Officer Filak by beating him in the face and kicking him in the head. They then fled in their car after Filak defended himself.

Cape police were able to locate the vehicle and the men two blocks away when Filak called to report the incident.

The officer was taken to Cape Coral Hospital where he was treated for injuries.

The men face charges of Robbery and Aggravated Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer. One suspect was taken to the hospital, treated and released into the custody of the police.
