CLEVELAND – A Cleveland officer is being credited with arresting an assault suspect after chasing him on horseback, on foot, and even onto a train.

On Monday, Mounted Unit Officers Sieger and Herrin saw a 17-year-old man hit another teen in the side of the head, knocking him to the ground. Since the officers were on horseback they were able to track the suspect as he ran through a crowd of people.

The officers went after the teen on horseback as he ran towards the entrance to Tower City, according to police. Officer Herrin dismounted off his horse and ran after the suspect.

The teen then ran toward the RTA rapid station and boarded a train. Officer Herrin followed him onto the train and arrested him.

The teen was arrested for felonious assault.

The 17-year-old man who was hit was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center for a head injury.

    I’m surprised people are not calling this officer racist. Heck, I’m surprised fox8 is reporting on this one.

    Where in the world do you come up with “racist” from this article. It’s an article about police officers doing a good job. Prayers, healing thoughts for the injured young man. Head injury is no joke – thank you, Officers.

    No, no …… it’s not racist at all. A racist in 2014 is someone having the social courage to finally and unequivocally call a spade a spade ….. was the suspect a spade …….. AGAIN? Only the ignorant and the racially righteous continue to make excuses ad nauseum for the “anointed minority!”

    And the horse wasn’t prejudice at all …… should have let the K-9 loose!

    I was thinking the same thing Cathy! I’m not exactly sure where they got the racist part from, some people are just bored and have nothing else better to do with there lives!!!!

      So what do think the perp was? Just another BLACK devoid of any race? Come on, not allowed to mention race solely because the perp is BLACK …….. AGAIN? It is what it is …… and all the pretentious, politically correct, racially sensitive nonsense won’t change that.

    And where was RTA’s finest for all this? Busy patting people down to make sure they paid their fare?

    How come a 17 yr. old in this article that hit someone is a “man” but the guy that got hit was a “teen”. Isn’t 17 still a teenager?
