Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SUNDAY SELECT -

Philadel­phia po­lice say they’ve ar­rested a sus­pect who hit a bi­cy­cle po­lice of­fi­cer while driv­ing a stolen ve­hi­cle.

Po­lice didn’t im­me­di­ately re­lease the name of the sus­pect in the in­ci­dent which hap­pened about 9:45 p.m. Sun­day.

Po­lice be­lieve the sus­pect in­ten­tion­ally tried to run over the of­fi­cer, who was knocked from the bi­cy­cle but not in­jured.

The sus­pect then ditched the stolen car a short time later and was caught by po­lice about four blocks away af­ter run­ning away from the scene.
