It’s been a futile search for a suspect who rammed a Phoenix Police cruiser. And your help is needed in finding the suspect involved in Sunday morning’s mayhem.

Phoenix Police Officer James Holmes says the confrontation stemmed from officers inspecting a white Dodge Ram with stolen plates at 35th Avenue and Thomas.

The officers followed the truck driver into a neighborhood where he parked in a home’s driveway, reversed and rammed the police cruiser. After ramming the patrol car two more times, the cops opened fire, and the man ran on foot after crashing his truck into a tree outside a home, with the truck bursting into flames.

Holmes describes the suspect as a White or light-skinned Hispanic male wearing a white tee-shirt and baseball cap. If you think you may know something, you’re asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or Phoenix Police at 602-261-7626.
