MARSHALL, TX (KSLA) - Marshall, Texas, police are sharing surveillance video in an attempt to identify the man involved in a scuffle during which two officers were hurt.

It happened about 3:55 a.m. Saturday at Whataburger in the 2000 block of Victory Drive.

A man came to the fast-food restaurant and tried to fight another person, authorities report.

A Marshall officer who was working security there and a Harrison County, Texas, sheriff's deputy who also was at the restaurant tried to take the man into custody.

A window was shattered during the ensuing scuffle.

Then the man ran away.

"Due to his tendency toward violence and injuries to law enforcement officers, the suspect is believed to pose a danger to the community," says a post on the Police Department's Facebook page.
