PHOENIX – The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for help identifying a man who rammed a deputy’s vehicle in a West Valley gas station parking lot last week.

The incident took place in the parking lot of a QuikTrip on Olive Avenue east of El Mirage Road in Youngtown on May 17, MCSO said in a bulletin on Wednesday.

A deputy was in the patrol vehicle when it was rammed. The suspect then hit two other vehicles before driving off.

The suspect was described as a man in his 20s with a thin build and medium-length hair. He was wearing a white T-shirt during the incident based on surveillance footage from inside the store.

The suspect’s abandoned vehicle was located about 2 miles away in a dirt lot near El Mirage Road and Peoria Avenue.

Anybody with information about the case was asked to call MCSO at 602-876-1011 and reference report #IR 22-012770.

We want to hear from you.
