At approximately 1:26 p.m. Wednesday, Niagara Falls Police Department officers responded to the City Market at 18th Street and Pine Avenue regarding an alleged stolen vehicle. Officers located the vehicle parked in the lot with two males inside. They approached the car on foot in an attempt to make contact with the occupants. In an effort to escape, the driver of the allegedly stolen vehicle then began ramming the police cars parked in front.
The vehicle fled at a high-speed, eventually crashing into another car at Pine Avenue and Portage Road. The driver of the other vehicle suffered a minor injury. Both occupants then fled the vehicle on foot and were apprehended after a brief foot chase.
The matter is still under investigation and charges are pending against the two males involved, who are both from Buffalo.
