An Omaha police officer was pistol-whipped by a suspect he was trying to arrest last Thursday night.

The officer was in the process of arresting Clifton Lytle on suspicion of domestic assault when Lytle hit the officer in the head twice with a handgun. Another officer used a stun gun to subdue Lytle, who was arrested.

Paramedics took the officer to a hospital, where he received staples to close two cuts on his head.
