Multiple RPD officers injured while chasing suspect
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Multiple Rochester Police officers were injured chasing a suspect Wednesday night.
Police say officers tried to stop a car for vehicle and traffic violations on 5th Street around 10 p.m., but the driver took off.
They followed the driver to Bay and Ackerman streets, where he ran away.
One officer jumped over a fence, attempting to follow the suspect. That officer broke his leg.
Police say he is going to be ok.
As for the other officers who were injured, "Several other officers, while assisting that officer, were stung by several bees—that they—found a nest, and were stung by several bees," said Lt. Joseph Perrone. "None of those officers are seriously injured, they received medical treatment and have since been released."
Police are still looking for the suspect.
There was a 17-year-old girl in the car with the suspect, and she is now facing multiple gun charges after police say they found two loaded guns at the scene.
