PORTAGE, WI -- A Portage police officer was knocked unconscious after a man he and his partner were trying to arrest kicked him in the head. 

It happened Sunday evening outside of a Kwik Mart. 

The officers were arresting a 21-year-old man on a probation violation outside of the convenience store and a scuffle broke out.

Bystander Vanessa Guerra slammed a female who was with the suspect against the wall after she also got involved in the struggle with the officers. 

"When I heard the word knife, at that point it's going to be you or me. At that point it was her," Guerra said. 

Both suspects face charges of battery and resisting arrest. 

The officers suffered bruises but are expected to be OK.
