PLEASANTVILLE -

A Police officer was injured Monday afternoon while attempting to arrest a wanted suspect.

It happened at Cedar Market, near Collins Avenue and Main Street around 2:15. Police were called to the market because 27-year-old Yaqin Muhammad, who was wanted by police, was seen at the store. On scene, police confronted Muhammad. Police say he then tried to flee in his friend's Nissan Altima. When he couldn't get around the police vehicles, Muhammad allegedly repeatedly rammed a marked SUV, injuring Patrolman Ed Cressey.

Muhammad was eventually arrested and now faces multiple charges. He is being held on $35,000 bail.
