Three Absecon officers were assaulted by a woman accused of a hit and run Friday night in Atlantic City, police said.

Atlantic City police contacted Absecon about a driver who hit a vehicle in Atlantic City at 7:53 p.m. and drove toward Absecon.

Police stopped the vehicle on Route 30. The driver, whom police did not identify Friday night, became combative with officers who asked her to exit the vehicle, authorities said.

During the arrest she began to assault the three officers at the scene, police said.

Two officers received minor injuries and were taken to a hospital as a precaution, police said.

Police did not release the charges against the suspect Friday night.
