ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A St. Louis police officer narrowly escaped serious injury this morning when a thief tried to run over him while stealing his personal car.

Police say the off-duty officer was working security at a business on Washington in Grand Center when he saw a man inside his vehicle and an accomplice in a gray Bonneville behind it.

As the officer walked toward his car, the suspect tried to hit him and then drove away north on Spring, followed by the Bonneville.

The officer was treated on the scene for a minor foot injury and shoulder pain.

His car was found later at Delmar and Whittier.

The suspects and the Bonneville haven’t been found yet.
