The man suspected of running over a Wichita police officer during a pursuit is now charged with aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer.
Police in Wichita are looking for a man they say left his baby daughter on a street before running away from a minor traffic accident.
Two witnesses picked up the 1-year-old girl in her carrier and brought her to the mother’s house. Paramedics checked the baby and said she was unhurt.
Police Capt. Troy Livingston says the incident occurred around 9 p.m. Wednesday when one vehicle rear-ended another that was preparing to enter a driveway.
A confrontation followed, and police say the driver who hit the other vehicle got out of his car with the baby in her carrier. He dropped the carrier on the street, then ran from the scene.
One of the witnesses recognized the man and knew where the mother lived.
