Officer Chases Suspect On Horse, Foot, and Onto Train
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.
