2 California police officers hit by car during alleged theft
SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say two California police officers responding to a reported theft were struck by a car driven by the suspect.
Police say a male and a female officer sustained non-life-threatening injuries Sunday night in the San Francisco Bay Area city of San Leandro. They are hospitalized in unknown condition.
The pair responded to a shoplifting report at a supermarket. Officials say as they tried to detain the male suspect, he was able to start his vehicle and drive away, striking both officers.
Police are searching for the suspect Monday.
