LARIMORE, N.D. - A Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Deputy was assaulted in Larimore on Tuesday evening while responding to a domestic dispute call.

According to the sheriff’s office, deputies were responding to verbal domestic dispute that had turned physical at a residence on Booth Avenue at about 9 p.m. An ambulance also was dispatched to the scene.

When a deputy entered the residence with the ambulance crew, Daniel Svir, 22, of Larimore, had apparently fallen down the stairs and was injured.

According to the sheriff’s department, Svir punched the deputy in the face and they both went to the ground. Svir then tried to strangle the deputy, before the deputy was able to get free and eventually subdue Svier, according to the sheriff’s department. Svir was arrested for assault on a police officer.
