Officers: Man rams Salt Lake City police car before fleeing
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Authorities say a man driving a white SUV rammed a police car in Salt Lake City before fleeing to an apartment complex.
Citing Salt Lake Police Lt. Dave Cracroft, KSL-TV reports that the man identified by officers as a known gang member had struck the police car after 2 a.m. Thursday.
Cracroft says a police gang unit had been watching for the man at a home at the south end of the city where he and a woman got into the vehicle with stolen license plates, hit the police car and fled to his apartment.
Police say a woman was taken into custody at the apartment complex.
A SWAT team was called to the scene as authorities sought to execute a search warrant inside the apartment.
