SHAWNEE COUNTY, Kan. (KAKE) - The Kansas Bureau of Investigations says a law enforcement officer was injured after getting bit during a search warrant in Rossville on Thursday morning.

The KBI says that alongside the Northeast Child Victims Task Force, the KBI Cyber Crime Unit and the Rossville Police Department, a search warrant was executed for child sexual abuse material in a home in Rossville. 

At approximately 6:40 a.m., law enforcement officers executed the search warrant for child sexual abuse material at 128 Pearl St in Rossville for an investigation that began on January 23, 2024, the KBI says.

A man inside the home, identified as 55-year-old John Ross of Rossville, became combative while detained and bit a Task Force Agent, breaking his skin. The agent was treated and released for his injury.

The KBI says Ross was transported to a Topeka hospital for minor injuries and booked into the Shawnee County Detention Center. He was arrested on charges of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer and obstruction of legal process.

During the search of the home, officers found methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. 

The investigation for child sexual abuse material and drug possession remains ongoing, the KBI says.
