On today’s date (09-24-19), at approximately 3:20pm, officers with the New Braunfels Police Department were called to the area of Dove Crossing and Eagle Pass for reports of a disturbance where a female was being forced into a vehicle by a male.
Officers arrived in the area and located the vehicle, a dark gray Nissan passenger car, and attempted a traffic stop, but the driver of the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed while driving erratically and with items being thrown from the car. The vehicle then nearly crashed into another vehicle, at which point an NBPD officer fired his weapon, successfully striking one of the vehicle’s tires. The suspect vehicle then cut across the median in an attempt to turn around and continue fleeing, but another NBPD officer used his patrol vehicle to force the suspect car into a tree along the side of County Line road, successfully disabling the vehicle.
The vehicle was occupied by a total of three people: two females and a male. The male and one of the females were transported to Resolute Health Hospital by New Braunfels EMS with non-life-threatening injuries. All 3 of the people in the vehicle have since been detained and are being questioned by NBPD detectives as part of the ongoing investigation.
NBPD remains on scene and the portion of County Line Road from Chartwell to Drawbridge Trail remains closed while that investigation continues.
