Security forces thwarted a number of “outlaws,” who attempted to break into a police station in Nasr City, sources told the state MENA news agency.
Three policemen were injured in the attack on the police station.
The news agency said that a squabble erupted between a police officer and a woman, who then allegedly called men to attack the police station, and that others threw stones at the building.
The Cairo security directorate sent the Central Security Force to protect the police station.
A number of the alleged attackers were arrested and referred to prosecutors.
