A burglary suspect attempting to flee police in the Kensington section of Philadelphia overnight struck one officer with a vehicle, then injured another during a resulting struggle, according to East Detectives.
Police said the incident began about 1:45 a.m. today when two plainclothes officers in a police car attempted to stop the man, who was a suspect in robberies in Bensalem and Philadelphia. The suspect, a 41-year-old white male, was still in his car at East Tioga and H Street.
As they approached, the suspect struck one officer with the car he was in, then took off, striking the police car and other parked cars, police said.
A second officer attempted to get the man out of the car, but was injured in the attempt as he was dragged.
