A New Orleans police officer mowed down by a carjacking suspect he was trying to apprehend last week is still recovering from a fractured arm, the commander of the New Orleans Police Department's 2nd District said Tuesday.
Officer Vincent Williams, a nine-year veteran, was injured on Sept. 9, when he and other 2nd District task force officers confronted Curtis Tassin, 20.
About 4:40 p.m. that day, Tassin allegedly helped two men carjack a Chevrolet Avalanche parked at the corner of St. Charles Avenue and Josephine Street. They forced a 6-year-old boy out of the car and drove off.
Officers John Fink and Jeremy Puhac of the Brunswick (OH) Police Department were called to assist animal control officers who were unable to free a deer entangled in a soccer net.
