CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati police are investigating a report of a felonious assault.

It started as a Thursday night trespassing call on the 1700 block of Garden Lane. Officers say when they arrived on scene, they saw a person immediately run into a car, lock the doors, and reach under the seat.

Officers said the man reversed the vehicle directly toward them when they asked him to exit the vehicle.

When officers jumped out of the way to avoid injury, they say the man sped away, nearly striking two more officers.

The man is described by police as black, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing about 165 pounds.

Those with information should call 513-352-3040. Callers may remain anonymous and may receive compensation for their information.
