Four officers with the Boston Police Department were injured as they pursued a man in a minivan over the weekend. 

According to the Boston Globe, police were in pursuit of a wanted subject—later identified by police as 35-year-old Michael McKoy—and had effected a traffic stop, when the subject suddenly attacked them with his vehicle.

A department spokesperson said, "As officers approached the vehicle, the operator suddenly reached down, placing the car into gear and stepped on the gas causing the car to lunge forward, striking several officers who were knocked to the ground and nearly pinned against the numerous vehicles in the area."

All four officers are expected to fully recover from their injuries after being treated and released from a nearby hospital.

Following the arrest, six firearms as well as a substantial sum of cash and more than 150 rounds of ammunition were recovered from the vehicle, according to police.

McKoy now faces numerous charges—including failure to stop for a stop signal, speeding, and leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident resulting in personal injury—and is being held in a local detention center.
