SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Police in Sioux Falls say a pregnant woman jumped onto a moving vehicle to try to stop a man from stealing money from a competition.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says the woman saw 23-year-old Austin Johnson take the cash box early Sunday, chased him and kept him from closing the door of his sport utility vehicle. Clemens says she jumped onto the running boards as the SUV began to move.

Clemens says the woman got on the running boards because she was afraid of getting dragged under the SUV. She fell off when the SUV crashed into a pole.

Clemens says she broke her left arm and right leg, but the fetus was not injured.

Johnson faces aggravated assault and other charges. It’s unclear if he has legal representation.
