A suspect who allegedly hit and dragged a Toronto Metropolitan Police officer with a stolen vehicle has now been apprehended and charged with attempted murder.

The incident occurred on November 21 at around 11:30pm around Eglinton Avenue West and Weston Road in the Metro Toronto area.

According to CTV News, the officer heard what he believed to be gunshots, and then saw a vehicle fleeing the area. He pursued the suspect and managed to get the vehicle to pull over on Scarlett Road around East Drive.

The officer got out of the police cruiser and that's when the suspect hit him.

The officer wound up clinging to the hood of the car, and eventually the suspect was able to shake the officer off. He fell off and sustained serious injuries. He was then taken to hospital and has since been released, as the injuries are serious, but non life-threatening.

Terry Baksh, 39 years of age and a resident of Toronto, has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime, driving while disqualified, flight from police, failing to comply with a release order, dangerous driving, assault with a weapon, as well as the aforementioned charge of attempted murder.
