(AP) — Police say they’ve arrested a man who violently assaulted a woman and fled from officers in Fargo.
Authorities say an officer approached a vehicle he had stopped for a traffic violation when a male passenger started beating the female driver, pinned her down and got behind the wheel around midnight Tuesday.
The man then apparently fled at a high rate of speed. A short time later, officers found the vehicle abandoned and located the victim. The man who had fled on foot was found several blocks away and was arrested.
The 32-year-old man is being held on possible charges felony reckless endangerment, fleeing, simple assault and refusing to halt.
