Last week, Littleton police were looking for a woman who drove a stolen car into an officer, throwing him over the hood and eluding arrest.
On June 28 at around noon, police were investigating a suspected stolen car in the 2800 block of West Belleview Avenue. As officers approached, the female driver accelerated and struck one of the officers. One shot was fired at the car. It is unknown if the vehicle was hit.
The driver fled the scene and was last seen in Englewood heading northbound on Santa Fe Drive at Hampden Avenue when police called off a high-speed chase.
The officer, whose name was not released, was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
The investigation into the identity of the driver was ongoing at press time. She was described as Hispanic with dyed blond hair, 25 to 30 years old, with a large build.
The car was an older dark-blue sedan, possibly the Honda Accord pictured, with heavy body damage.
