Police injured in Woodlawn chase

December 23, 2009|By Richard Irwin

Three Woodlawn Precinct police officers were injured Tuesday night while pursuing the occupants of a Jeep suspected of being used in at least two armed robberies.

Police said the officers were in separate cruisers about 8:35 p.m. when they observed the Jeep at Security Boulevard near Forest Park Avenue and pursued it for a short distance, during which the Jeep collided with at least one police car. Police said three males in the stolen car were arrested moments later while fleeing on foot. The fourth hid in deep snow but was detected by the crew of a police helicopter using a heat source device.

Police said two injured officers were taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment of minor injuries and that the third officer was taken to Northwest Hospital Center for treatment of a hand injury.
