Thursday, August 16, 2018

Two officers have suffered minor injures after police say they were struck by a suspicious vehicle in commercial center near Windmill Parkway and Pecos Road.

The incident took place at 8:10 p.m. Sunday August 12, 2018.

Two officers have suffered minor injures after police say they were struck by a suspicious vehicle in commercial center near Windmill Parkway and Pecos Road.

The incident took place at 8:10 p.m. Sunday.

Henderson police officers were investigating reports of a suspicious vehicle in the center. The officers made contact with the driver, when a physical confrontation reportedly took place.

The driver reportedly struck two of the officers when driving off. An officer fired one or two rounds at the suspect, but the vehicle escaped.

In a press released Monday, Officer Rod Peña said an officer approached three people on a report of suspicious activity in the area.

"During investigation, the suspects ignored the officer’s commands and an altercation ensued as a second officer arrived to assist," the statement reads.

A man got into the driver's seat of a Toyota, with a woman already in the front passenger's seat, drove over the first officer's foot and hit both officers as he drove away.

One officer fired his gun "several times," according to the statement.

It's unknown if the driver, identified as 27-year-old Larry Calvert, or the passenger, 26-year-old Marcella Levia, were injured in the incident, Peña said.

The third person left on foot. She has been identified as 26-year-old Summer Waters.

Calvert is wanted on suspicion of battery with a deadly weapon against the officers, and the two women are considered persons of interest. The suspect car is described as a 1998 Toyota Camry with California license 4BSC566.

The two officers involved suffered minor injuries, and they were treated at the scene Sunday.
