Investigators in Montgomery County hope you can help them find two people they say drove an ATV into a Shenandoah police officer early Thursday morning, breaking his leg. It all started around 2am when Sgt. Raymond Shaw reported the pair illegally operating an ATV near Six Pines and Research Forest. When Sgt. Shaw approached, he says the adult driver and passenger fled on the ATV towards a residential area.

Sgt. Shaw says he later found the ATV in the 500 block of Hickory Ridge. The suspects reportedly saw Sgt. Shaw and tried to flee again. Sgt. Shaw tried to block them in and got out of his vehicle to flag them down. He says that's when the suspects turned the ATV around and headed towards him.

The ATV struck Sgt. Shaw, knocking him to the ground, and flipping the ATV over. Sgt. Shaw tried to get up and chase after the pair, but when he did, he realized he was injured from the impact and couldn't.

The two suspects got back on the ATV, according to investigators, and fled.

Sgt. Shaw was transported by EMS to Memorial Hermann Hospital and is now recovering at home. He suffered multiple broken bones in his leg.

Police are looking for the two suspects, wanted for aggravated assault on a police officer. The driver is described as a white male in his 30s with salt and pepper hair. The passenger is a blonde female in her 30s, as well. It's possible that the female suffered an injury. Both suspects were wearing dark clothing.

The ATV is presumed to be a blue and white Yamaha Raptor quad-racer type four-wheeler.

If you have any information that would help identify the two suspects, please contact the Shenandoah Police Department at 281-367-8952.
