HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Police say a Pennsylvania driver struck a pedestrian in front of officers looking into an earlier report of a pedestrian hit.

The Harrisburg police officers went to an area near a bar around 2 a.m. Sunday after a 911 caller reported a pedestrian having been struck. They found no victim.

Pennlive.com reports (https://bit.ly/1Nt9YQI ) a driver then ran over a pedestrian right in front of the officers and sped away.

Police Sgt. Kyle Gautsch says the victim, a 26-year-old man, refused medical attention. Officers eventually caught up with the 21-year-old driver, Jarae Lee.

Police say Lee appeared intoxicated and kicked an officer in the chest. She faces charges including aggravated assault. Online court documents don’t list a lawyer for her.

Police never found the victim from the original call.
