Two Charged in Chase And Crash Involving Police Car

Two arrests have been made following a chase that sent a Rochester police officer to the hospital.
Police say Damien Rutledge, 18, allegedly rode his bike in front of a car driving on Glendale Park Saturday evening. The car hit Rutledge, so police say he pulled the driver out of the car and started assaulting him.

Bruce Allen, 16, was with Rutledge at the time. Police said he jumped into the victim's car and drove away.

Police tried to pull Allen over, and a chase followed. Allen crashed into another police car, then ran away on foot.

Police caught up with both suspects a short time later.

Allen was charged with robbery, grand larceny and other traffic charges, and Rutledge was charged with robbery and assault.

The victim and the police officer involved in the crash were both taken to the hospital with minor head injuries.
