Peter Leon, spokesperson for Barrie Police, told Barrie 360 that on Tuesday, April 12, around 10 p.m., two men exited the St. Louis Bar & Grill at 350 Big Bay Point Road and were approached by the suspect, who also exited the bar, and an altercation occurred.
Leon says the suspect then drove his car aggressively at one of the men, and pinned him against a vehicle – the suspect then fled the scene.
According to Leon, an officer spotted the suspect’s vehicle heading down Big Bay Point Road and onto Fairview Road. As police attempted to stop the vehicle, the suspect struck the front right corner of the police cruiser, and subsequently a responding ambulance before getting away.
Leon says no one was seriously injured.
Barrie Police is asking the public for help identifying the suspect. He was driving a maroon Chevy Equinox.
Leon says the man is wanted for assault with a weapon (the weapon being his vehicle), dangerous driving, three counts of failing to remain, and failure to stop for an incident.
