Police in Stoneham, Massachusetts, are searching for a man they say assaulted an officer and hit a cruiser while fleeing the scene Monday morning. 

A warrant is out for the arrest of 33-year-old Tewksbury resident Matthew Macinnes on charges including assault and battery on a police officer, operating to endanger and resisting arrest. 

Police responded to a disturbance on Main Street around 2:15 and attempted to place Macinnes into custody. 

He then punched an officer and escaped to his truck, where he locked himself in and struck a cruiser parked in front of him. 

Macinnes fled onto I-93 at speed over 100 MPH and a pursuit was ultimately called off. 

Anyone with information on Macinnes is asked to contact police at 781-438-1215.
