DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — Dallas County officials are looking for two men accused of ramming an off-duty deputy’s car at an apartment complex over the weekend.
The department says a Dallas Sheriff’s deputy was working an off-duty part-time security job at the Spanish Village Apartments, located at 3232 Sumter Dr. in Dallas.
The deputy was responding to a call that two men were urinating in the parking lot. When the deputy approached the men, they jumped inside their vehicle and rammed the deputy’s personal car several times.
The officer, who was on foot, managed to break the passenger-side front window with his baton as the suspects tried to run him over. Fearing for his life, the deputy fired three shots near the driver side window.
“The officer shot three times at the pickup truck’s window,” said Carmen Castro with Dallas County Sheriff’s Office. “The suspect vehicle suffered extensive damage to the front window and also the right side of it.”
The suspects then fled the scene and were last spotted driving in reverse heading north on Webb Chapel Extension.
It is unclear if the suspects were injured in the incident, but the vehicle, described as a dark colored four-door pickup truck, suffered extensive damage.
The driver is described as a slender, clean-cut Hispanic man between the ages of 40 and 50. The passenger is described as a Hispanic man wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt.
Evidence recovered at the scene suggests the truck may be used as a construction business vehicle.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Dallas County Sheriff’s Dispatch at 214-749-8641.
