Lodi police arrested a man they say tried to punch an officer Wednesday night.

A resident living on the 0 block of West Locust Street called the police to report a man he said was trespassing on his property, according to Lodi Police Sgt. Eric Versteeg. When officers arrived, they said the suspect ran.

Officers soon located the man near the intersection of School and Locust streets. When officers confronted the man, they said he charged and tried to punch one officer, Versteeg said.

But officers pinned him to the ground and took him into custody.

Charles Norman, 38, of Lodi, was booked into Lodi Jail on suspicion of obstructing and resisting a police officer.
