A man tried to escape police officers Tuesday afternoon after an alleged battery and violation of protection from abuse order.
At 2:11 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to the 1100 block of East Hulse for a report of battery and violation of a protection from abuse order. A 37-year-old McPherson woman said a man pushed her away from his car, causing her to fall.
When officers arrived, the man was leaving in his vehicle and did not stop when officers turned on their sirens. Road conditions prevented the man from escaping, and the officers were able to stop the vehicle. An investigation is ongoing.
