Man arrested after twice ramming police vehicle with truck

Police have a man in custody after he rammed a police vehicle with truck he was driving.

On Friday, at 8 p.m., Prince George RCMP received a complaint of a suspicious vehicle parked near the 10500-block of Hartman Road.

When a police officer arrived at the location, police say the driver backed the suspect truck into the police car, ramming it twice before ending up in the ditch beside the road. The suspect then fled on foot.

“Police were able to positively identify the driver as a well-known violent offender and requested the assistance of the North District Emergency Response Team and a Police Dog Services team in locating him,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP. “After an extended foot pursuit, police officers located and arrested the suspect without further incident. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance.”

Investigators determined the truck driven by the suspect had been stolen from the Prince George area in December 2022. Police officers also located a loaded firearm inside the vehicle.

The police officer involved in the initial incident was not injured when his vehicle was struck by the suspect.
