Toronto police say they are searching for a woman who allegedly hit an officer with a stolen vehicle in North York late Friday.
Police said they were investigating the vehicle in the area of Keele Street and Highway 401 around 11:30 p.m. when a woman in the vehicle allegedly attempted to run over an officer.
A police spokesperson told Global News an officer was struck — but not run over — and suffered minor injuries.
The woman then fled the scene in the vehicle, the spokesperson said.
Nina Laxamana, 37, is now wanted on several charges including assaulting a police officer with a weapon, failing to stop at the scene of an accident, possession of property obtained by crime, and failure to comply with an undertaking.
Police described her as five-feet-four, 145 pounds and said she was last seen wearing a beige coat.
