    Deputies serving an eviction notice near the 3200 block of Delwood Drive in Del City Monday afternoon got in a scuffle with a suspect leaving both deputies injured.

    The evicted, Eric Ortiz, was also being served a misdemeanor warrant out of Cleveland County for Larceny of Merchandise from a retailer.

    Deputies say Ortiz ran from them, one deputy broke his ankle and the other injures his shoulder.

    Ortiz managed to get away and now faces possible charges of assault on a peace officer among others.

    Both deputies are recuperating at home.

    Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office is asking if you see or know where Ortiz is to call them at 405-869-2501 or call 911.
