A suspect is likely to face multiple felony charges after crashing into a Mounds View squad car Sunday evening and then attempting to flee on foot.
Officers, with the help of a police K-9 team, apprehended the suspect following the crash and a short foot chase about 6:25 p.m. at Quincy Street and Oakwood Drive.
An officer involved in the crash and the suspect were both taken to Regions Hospital, according to a news release from the Mounds View Police Department. The Star Tribune typically does not name suspects before they are charged.
Events unfolded when police spotted a vehicle with no license plates near Jackson Drive and Lambert Avenue. Police attempted a traffic stop, but the suspect sped off through a residential area. Police called off a pursuit but continued to look for the vehicle.
A short time later, officers saw the vehicle driving at a high speed at County Road I and Quincy Street. The vehicle struck a Mounds View squad car and the suspect ran but was caught by police.
