ST. LOUIS (KMOX) -  St. Louis police say a suspected car thief made a grab for an officer’s gun during a struggle earlier this week.

It happened Tuesday night when a suspect fleeing police crashed into another vehicle and the driver fled into a back yard in the 3800 block of Utah.

The officer gave chase and had his gun in his hand when he caught the suspect, later identified as 19-year-old Orlando Demarco Paul.

Paul allegedly made a grab for the weapon but was unable to take it away.

The vehicle Paul had been driving was later found to have been stolen during a carjacking earlier in the week in St. Louis County.

Paul is jailed for assaulting a law enforcement officer, vehicle theft and resisting arrest.
