A Brooklyn man remains behind bars for allegedly assaulting two police officers who caught him urinating in public at an Ozone Park train station this weekend.

Two uniformed members of the NYPD Transit Bureau spotted Roger Barksdale, 30, allegedly peeing on the platform of the Rockaway Boulevard A train station at 12:01 a.m. on Dec. 9, authorities said.

When they went to arrest him, law enforcement sources said, Barksdale allegedly pushed one of the officers away and ran out of the station. The second cop pursued the suspect out of the station, but wound up falling down a flight of stairs. Barksdale kept running and fled the scene.

Officers from the 106th Precinct and EMS units responded to the incident. Paramedics brought the second officer to a local hospital for treatment of an injury to his right knee. The first officer suffered minor injuries and refused medical attention.

As a result of an investigation, police tracked down Barksdale later on Dec. 9 and took him into custody on charges of attempted assault, resisting arrest and obstruction of governmental administration.

During his arraignment hearing, court records indicated, Barksdale was ordered held on $10,000 bond/$15,000 cash bail and to return to court on Dec. 15.
