Shortly after 2:00 am Thursday morning, December 30, 2010, Shenandoah Police Sergeant Raymond Shaw was seriously injured when he was intentionally struck by two adults riding a four-wheeled ATV who had fled from a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy. The suspects are still at large.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy spotted the ATV illegally operating on the roadway behind Culver’s Restaurant near Six Pines and Research Forest. As the Deputy approached the adult driver and passenger, the driver fled towards the Shenandoah residential area. Sergeant Shaw responded and located the ATV near the 500 block of Hickory Ridge in the thoroughfare construction zone. Spotting Sergeant Shaw, the suspects fled again towards Research Forest but were blocked by the Deputy. The suspects turned the ATV around and headed back towards Sergeant Shaw, who had exited his vehicle in an attempt to flag down the driver. The suspect, seeing that he was completely blocked by patrol vehicles, then intentionally accelerated the ATV and made impact with Sergeant Shaw’s legs, throwing him to the ground. Subsequently, the ATV flipped over causing both the driver and rider to fall off. As Sergeant Shaw attempted to regain his footing and chase after the suspects it was clear that his leg was broken in multiple places. The suspect driver and passenger were able to get back on to the ATV and flee through the neighborhood. Sergeant Shaw was transported by EMS to Memorial Hermann Hospital and is now at home beginning a lengthy recovery process.
The Shenandoah Police Department is asking for assistance in locating these two suspects who are wanted for Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer, a Felony. The driver is described as a white male in his 30’s with salt and pepper hair and the passenger is a blonde female in her 30’s as well. It is 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 assist in the identification of these two felony suspects, please contact the Shenandoah Police Department at (281) 367-8952.
