FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Fort Wayne Police are searching for an Illinois man they say dragged an officer with a stolen vehicle while the officer responded to a call.

Randy Reiser, 23, is wanted for resisting law enforcement with injury, possession of a stolen vehicle and felony fleeing in a vehicle.

According to the department, Reiser dragged the officer with a stolen vehicle after police responded to a man down call around 7:30 a.m. Saturday on Northbrook Valley Drive. No details have been provided about the type of vehicle he then took off in other than it had been stolen out of Illinois.

Reiser was already wanted out of Illinois for forgery, Fort Wayne Police said.

The department says he should be considered armed and dangerous and no one should attempt to apprehend or approach him. Police said Monday Reiser may no longer be in this area.

If you see him, you are asked to call 911 and provide any information about where and possible clothing he may be wearing.

The officer had minor injuries, according to the department.

The investigation is ongoing.
