The driver of the vehicle continued into the Princeton Woods development where he exited the vehicle and fled on foot in the area Periscope Pl. Police pursued the accused on foot and caught up to him not far from where he exited the vehicle. When officers attempted to detain the accused, he struck one of the officers in the face with his elbow. The accused was able to break away and escape into a nearby wooded area.
