Suspect and Officer Injured During Traffic Stop

Los Angeles: A suspect and a Los Angeles Police Officer were injured when the suspect attempted to escape while being handcuffed.

On July 29, 2007, at about 12:20 AM, Northeast patrol officers made a traffic stop of a vehicle that was being pushed by the suspect, Bruno Aguilar, 30, and his friend, near Mesa Avenue and Avenue 61.

Officer Fernando Salcedo, 40, 9 years with the Department, was handcuffing Aguilar when he suddenly ran from the Officer in an attempt to escape. After a short foot pursuit Officer Salcedo caught up to the suspect and attempted to take him into custody. Their momentum carried them forward, causing them to fall to the ground resulting in injury.

Officer's recovered a loaded handgun from Aguilar's vehicle and he was booked for being in possession of a loaded firearm.

Force Investigation Division personnel responded and are investigating the incident.
