Police: Officers injured by man driving stolen truck
BOSTON (AP) — A Massachusetts man police say stole a truck from a construction site and then used it to injure two Boston police officers while trying to escape is heading to court.
Police say 49-year-old Robert Bjorkman, Middleborough, stole the truck at about noon Saturday in Boston.
Multiple attempts to stop the suspect were unsuccessful. The suspect struck several parked vehicles before backing into one officer’s cruiser. Investigators say as another officer exited his cruiser, the suspect struck him with the stolen truck.
Both officers were transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Bjorkman was eventually apprehended.
He faces numerous charges including assault to murder and malicious destruction of property. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
