Officers attempted to stop the car at 16th and Nedro Streets. The driver pulled over, but as officers approached the suspect allegedly ran down one of the officers as he attempted to drive away.

Police say the suspect struck two parked vehicles, then exited the car with his hands in his pockets and gestured to officers as if he was going to point something at them.
