GLEN ROCK, Pa. (AP) - A police officer was dragged about 50 yards down a central Pennsylvania street after responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle.

Southern Regional Police Chief James Boddington says the officer was responding to a call about a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot of the CS Convenience Store in Glen Rock, Pennsylvania, around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

He spotted a car matching the description just down the street from the store. As he approached the passenger side, a man inside grabbed his arm and the driver sped off. The officer was dragged down the street for about 50 yards until the man released his arm.

The unnamed officer suffered an ankle injury and abrasions. Boddington says he’s “angry but OK.”

Police are using surveillance footage to track down the owner.
