A police officer was conducting a traffic stop on two suspicious vehicles in an apartment complex. As the officer approached the vehicles, one of the drivers attempted to leave the scene, and crashed into the officer’s vehicle. The officer was able to detain the driver who hit the police car, while the driver of the other vehicle fled on foot. Police searched the area for the driver who ran away on foot but were unsuccessful. Kyle Cherkas (5/17/91) was booked into jail for fleeing, possession of a controlled substance, and drug paraphernalia.
127 S. 800 E.
A 31-year-old man heard a car alarm go off in the back of the apartment complex. As he went around the corner of the building to check on the situation, he observed a male rapidly approaching him with an unknown shinny object in his hand. The 31-year-old told the person to stop. When the male did not comply, the man fearing for his safety fired one round at the approaching male. The male turned and ran away. Officers checked the area but were unable to locate the male who ran from the scene or the impact from the shot fired.
