An officer responding to the call received a description of the suspect, a Black male in his 30s, over the radio. Another officer, arriving at the scene in the 2500 block of Brewster, spotted an individual matching this description.

As the officer attempted to approach the suspect for investigation, the suspect fled, leading to a pursuit. A physical struggle ensued when the officer tried to apprehend the suspect, who allegedly tried to disarm the officer.
