Man Arrested After Chasing Victim With Gun In Broad Day Light Then Running Over Two Cops And Kidnapping One

A man in Washington has been arrested after he fled from the cops running over two of them and kidnapping a third.

The suspect Natango Robinson, 35, went on the run from the police after he allegedly chased a victim with a gun through the streets in broad daylight.

The incident which saw Robinson run over two cops, kidnap one and eventually get shot took place at the 500 block of Kennedy Street in Washington at around 4.45 pm on Friday, 22nd October.

The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) said in a statement that officers arrived at the scene and engaged the suspect.

As they were patting him down they found a handgun tucked into his waistband. Realising that he was busted the suspect managed to get away from the cops and bolted towards his car.

Robinson managed to make it back to his car with the cops in pursuit.

He jumped behind the wheel and attempted to pull away but one of the officers managed to grab him and tried to pull him out of the vehicle.

Robinson overpowered the cop and pulled away hitting two officers in the process and essentially kidnapping the third officer that was still in the car.

According to the statement, Robinson drove two city blocks with the officer in the car ignoring repeated demands from the cop telling him to pull over.

The officer shot the suspect and then bailed out of the moving car as Robinson continued to drive despite sustaining a gunshot wound.

All three officers required treatment but their injuries were non-life-threatening.

The suspect was later arrested after police located him at a local hospital receiving treatment.

The suspect was charged with Felony Assault on a Police Officer While Armed, Kidnapping While Armed, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Resisting Arrest and several other felonies.

Robert Conte, MPD Chief, according to WJLA told reporters: “I think that it just really speaks to the brazenness of this individual to chase somebody down the street with a gun in broad daylight.

“The officer was actually, literally kidnapped, if you will, in the back seat of the vehicle while this guy is driving down two or three blocks from the initial point of the stop.”

The officer who fired the shot is currently on administrative leave as demanded by MPD policy whilst his body cam footage is reviewed.

No updates on the health status of the suspect were given and his trial date was not specified.
