Two suspects are in custody after they rammed the patrol car of the deputy attempting to contact them, which led to a pursuit ending at the intersection of 121st Street SE and 19th Ave SE on Wednesday morning, July 12, 2017.

Around 4:40 a.m., a deputy was dispatched to the area near the 3200 block of 132nd Street SE for a report of a vehicle parked in a disabled spot with the occupants sleeping inside.  The vehicle was reported to be stolen. 

As the deputy approached, the suspect driver vehicle rammed the deputy's patrol car and fled.  

A pursuit ensued and the suspect vehicle was stopped after stop sticks and PIT maneuvers were deployed.  Two female occupants of the vehicle are in custody and the female driver faces a number of charges including 1st degree assault and possession of a stolen vehicle. A male passenger was released.

The road was closed for the investigation but has since re-opened.

Three Sheriff's Office patrol cars were damaged and one deputy sustained minor injuries.

The deputy was injured when the suspect turned into his patrol car while he was attempting a PIT maneuver. He has been taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

The deputy whose car was rammed when first making contact with the suspects was not injured.
