Four Gainesville, GA, officers were attacked and injured in two separate incidents over the weekend.

In one incident, police said two officers were responding to a call from Georgia's Division of Family & Children Services (DFACS) after a juvenile had allegedly physically assaulted social workers. The Gainesville Police Department said the officers arrived and attempted to de-escalate the situation, but the juvenile began attacking them as well. The officers had to be transported to the hospital with injuries, police told 11Alive.

In another incident, officers were called to a local motel after receiving a "suspicious person" call. Officers arrived and were allegedly assaulted by a 27-year-old, Gainesville Police said. Both officers were treated for their injuries, police said.
