VÁSQUEZ, Presiding Judge:
¶1 Following a jury trial, appellant Armstrong Kpou was convicted of two counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer. The trial court sentenced him to concurrent, two-year terms of imprisonment.2 Counsel has filed a brief in compliance with Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and State v. Clark, 196 Ariz. 530, 2 P.3d 89 (App. 1999), stating she has reviewed the record and has found no "arguably meritorious issue to raise on appeal." Counsel has asked us to search the record for fundamental error. Kpou has not filed a supplemental brief.
¶2 Viewed in the light most favorable to sustaining the verdict, the evidence was sufficient to support the jury's finding of guilt. See State v. Delgado, 232 Ariz. 182, ¶ 2, 303 P.3d 76, 79 (App. 2013). The evidence presented at trial showed Kpou fought with two uniformed Tucson Police Department officers who had responded to a call that Kpou was "kicking in a door at a women's shelter." He knocked one to the ground and struck him in the face, and caused scrapes and abrasions to both officers and a laceration to the head of one officer. We further conclude the sentence imposed is within the statutory limit. A.R.S. §§ 13-702(D), 13-1204(A)(8)(a), (D).
¶3 Pursuant to our obligation under Anders, we have searched the record for fundamental, reversible error and have found none. Therefore, we affirm Kpou's convictions and his sentences as corrected.
