Two males inside the vehicle jumped out and ran, allowing the vehicle to roll into the police car.

Police were able to catch one suspect quickly, while another man was able to escape the scene. That suspect was described a tall, thin, white male.

Drugs and ammunition were found inside the vehicle.

Officers searched for the second suspect in the area of Perrott Street and Winshire Street, but he was not found.
