Three Boston police officers sustained non-life-threatening injuries while responding to a radio call at the Boston Public Library on Tuesday, where they were punched and bitten by a man who had reportedly been masturbating, according to authorities. 

Police responded to reports from library staff around 8:30 a.m. saying an adult male — later identified as Cornelio Conley, 43 — was masturbating in front of the historic building.

“When asked to leave by library staff, Conley became combative and assaulted a member of library staff,” the Boston Police Department (BPD) said Tuesday in a news release.

Conley resisted officers’ attempts to take him into custody and “threw a tarp” at one of the officers. He also punched and bit officers, according to the news release.

Officers used pepper spray to stop Conley and took him “into custody without further incident,” police said. Additional responding units transported the officers to a nearby hospital to address their injuries.
