CAMAS, Wash. -- A fleeing burglar rammed a police car and then fled on foot after he was caught burglarizing a Camas home Monday.

Investigators said an officer confronted the burglar after he was spotted at a home near the intersection of 28th Avenue and Sierra Road just after 10 a.m.

Then, the suspect got into a car and the officer briefly held him there with a Taser. That was when the officer said the suspect started up the vehicle and rammed his patrol car.

A backup officer was dragged behind the suspect's car and injured, police said.  Officer Tim Fellows suffered an injured hand and was treated at Peace Health Medical Center.

After that, the suspect crashed into a front yard, abandoned his car and fled on foot.  He was captured about three hours later after an area resident called 911 and said he was hiding in their yard.

Suspect Bradley Jensen, 24, faces several charges, including robbery, burglary, theft, possession of stolen property, assault, resisting arrest and hit-and-run.
