Vehicle Pursuit

On Tuesday July 14th at about 4:00pm, officers of the City of Dunkirk Police Department located a vehicle that had previously been reported stolen, being operated on the roadway near the intersection of Maple Ave. and W. Courtney St. Officers confirmed the vehicle to be stolen and attempted to execute a vehicle and traffic stop on the vehicle in question. The operator of the vehicle failed to comply with the traffic stop and led officers on a brief pursuit through the City, which ended when the vehicle came to a stop on Park Ave. near E. Second St. A total of five passengers were inside the vehicle, all of which were juveniles. All juveniles in the vehicle were identified and turned over to a parent or guardian. The operator of the vehicle was transported to police headquarters for further questioning in the presence of a guardian. One juvenile was evaluated by Dunkirk Fire/Rescue for a possible panic attack and transported to Brooks Hospital via Dunkirk Fire. This incident is still under investigation and charges against the juveniles involved are pending with Family court upon the conclusion of the investigation.
