    Rushed off


    What does rushed off mean in this context?

    The students accused the police of attacking them; however, the

    police rushed off saying that the students started the violence.

    Re: Rushed off

    Difficult to say since it's not a phrase I'd expect to hear. It seems to suggest that the police backed down and ran away after the violence but for any police force that I've heard of that seems unlikely.

    Re: Rushed off

    Can it by any means indicate that they( the policemen) defended themselves from such accusation?

    Not in the limited context we have.
