BROOMFIELD, Colo. (CBS4) – A police pursuit that wound through several neighborhoods in the northwestern section of the Denver metro area ended in a crash in Broomfield Thursday morning.
“The suspect eluded officers, ran through a fence where an officer had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit,” Westminster police said in a release to reporters.
The SUV involved apparently then intentionally rammed a Westminster police cruiser near the King Soopers at 84th and Pecos. The officer in the car wasn’t hurt.
Eventually the driver crashed on Buffalo Street just north of Trails Avenue sometime before 11 a.m. That’s where the suspect ran from the scene.
The suspect was described as being a white male, 6-foot-1, weighing 180 pounds and with blond hair. He was last seen wearing a black coat and blue jeans.
Police said they think he is armed.
Copter4 spotted armed police officers searching for the suspect at a home in the area at 11:30 a.m. A K-9 team was involved in the search.
Due to the search, several schools were placed on lockout status.
