Pittsburgh police officer injured in response to domestic incident
A Pittsburgh police officer was injured in response to a domestic incident in Brookline this morning.
According to Pittsburgh Public Safety, officers were called to the 500 block of Brookline Blvd. just before 4 a.m. for a domestic incident involving a man and a woman. When officers arrived at the scene, they surrounded a vehicle with the man inside. The man allegedly backed up, hitting a police cruiser and forcing an officer to jump to avoid being hit.
The officer hit his head on a curb, according to a report. She was taken to hospital by doctors in stable condition with pain in her neck and wrist.
The suspect then crashed into another vehicle before fleeing. He was later wrecked at the bottom of Pioneer Avenue and walked through a wooded area. Officers found him near London Towne Road, where he was taken into custody.
Several charges should be brought against the man. No other details were provided.
