Burglary suspects hurt while fleeing

September 27, 2010

Two men were taken to Wishard Hospital early Monday after suffering injuries while fleeing police investigating a break-in at a west-side Public Storage facility. An officer also was injured during the chase. The facility’s manager called 9-1-1 just after midnight after noticing two men on the property breaking into storage units. Police said the burglars had used bolt cutters to get into 10 of the units. Police set up a perimeter, saw the suspects scaling a razor-wire fence, and pursued them. One officer was cut climbing the fence. A police dog tracked down one of the suspects immediately, and the other was found hiding nearby. Both men are expected to recover. Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
