LEICESTER — Two people were arrested following an incident in Leicester on Saturday.

Authorities say they were notified of a family disturbance at a home on Fern Lake Road at around 9:00 p.m.

While troopers attempted to investigate, Joshua Runnells, 44, of Leicester, impeded law enforcement by attempting to prevent troopers from speaking with the alleged juvenile victim.

Police say Runnells was placed into custody for safety purposes, at which time he actively resisted the troopers.

After a struggle, Runnells was placed under arrest for impeding public officers.

While attempting to place Runnells under arrest, Erinn Landry, 41, of Leicester, hindered the arrest by charging at troopers with a child in her arms.

Once the child was safely removed from Landry’s arms, she was placed into custody after another struggle.

Runnells and Landry were both transported to the New Haven barracks for processing.

At the conclusion of processing, Runnells and Landry were released with citations to appear in court at a later date.
