An IMPD officer was injured Friday night while trying to help a woman who was being attacked.

Lt. Christopher Bailey spotted two people punching the woman at Pan Am Plaza. He chased a 15-year-old believed to be involved but the teen knocked him to the ground, according to investigators. That's when a man came up behind Lt. Bailey and hit him in the head with a water cup.

That man got away but police arrested the teen for disorderly conduct and resisting an officer.

Bailey had scrapes and bruises but is expected to be okay.
