“Our officers responded to the scene and the individual was sort of cornered in here, there was no escape route, so he turned around and appeared to intentionally ram one of our cars then got away on foot,” Baldwin Police Chief Michael Scott said.
The suspects are now in custody. One of them was wanted on parole violations. K-9 officers were tracking a third suspect along the Monongahela River, but they gave up about 5:10 p.m.
No one was seriously injured.
