CYPRESS PARK — A suspected vehicle thief rammed two police cars during a police pursuit this afternoon across the streets of Cypress Park and Glassell Park.
A man driving a Toyota minivan that was stolen in Glassell Park earlier in the day was pulled over by police when he sped away, prompting the police pursuit, said Sgt. Victor Arellano. The chase ended on Maceo Street near Cypress Avenue, where the suspect was apprehended after the van struck a curb.
The man was transported to a hospital. Police officers were said to have suffered some minor injuries described as “bumps and bruises,” according to one officer.
