Two men who attempted to force their way into a home in Port Richmond late Thursday afternoon were arrested after a struggle with the homeowner, cops said, and a police officer was taken to be checked out at the hospital after he came into contact with blood from one of the suspects.

Cops said the men tried to get into a house on Aramingo Avenue near Ann Street around 5:30 p.m. when the homeowner fought with them and injured one badly enough to draw blood. Police arrived at the scene and arrested both men, but one officer had to be taken to Temple University Hospital to be evaluated because he was exposed to the man’s blood.

He was expected to be treated and released, authorities said. Cops were still investigating the attempted home-invasion around later Thursday evening.
