Suspect Who Dragged Officer With Car Sought: Miami-Dade Police

Authorities are searching for a suspect who dragged an officer with his car while fleeing a bank in Miami Lakes Wednesday.

Miami-Dade Police said officers responded to the bank at 16200 Northwest 57th Avenue shortly after 1 p.m. to a report of a possible fraud in progress.

Officers detained the suspect but he ran out of a bank and into a car, officials said. An officer who tried to stop the suspect was dragged by the suspect's car for several feet until the officer was able to free himself and fell to the ground, officials said.

The suspect sped away. The officer suffered cuts to his hands and legs and was treated at the scene.

Police released a photo of the suspect and are asking anyone with information to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
