SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Two San Antonio police officers are recovering after both chased down a suspect who might be connected to numerous car burglaries on the West Side.
Officers were called Monday at around 7 a.m. on report of a suspicious person at an apartment complex near Highway 151 and Ingram Road.
As the officers looked around the area, they say they noticed one man who appeared to be breaking into cars. Investigators say the man started running after police tried to engage, and two of the officers suffered minor injuries during a chase that went through a wooded area.
The suspect was eventually found and arrested.
The officers were treated for cuts and scrapes.
