Tulsa Police look for a suspect who bit a police officer

Authorities are searching for a woman who bit a Tulsa Police officer. It happened when the officer was investigating a vehicle which ran into a ditch after an altercation with another car over the weekend.

The officer says when she approached the vehicle; a man got out and ran off. The officer took a woman into custody and put her in handcuffs, but the woman started to struggle with the officer, then bit her on the arm and ran off, still handcuffed.

"There's somebody that probably helped her in the neighborhood, either let her in a house or picked her up in a car, and with handcuffed tied behind her back, she's gonna have to have somebody help her get those off.”

The officer will have to be tested for diseases periodically until the woman is found. The suspect is described as a black woman, 5’-5” and 120-pounds. She was wearing a white tank top, blue jean shorts, and a pink bandana.

If you know anything about the case, call Crimestoppers at 596-COPS.
