State police are asking for help to identify a juvenile who hit a Manchester police officer with a stolen car in Hebron on Tuesday night, police said.
State police said a Hebron resident trooper was helping Manchester officers take a juvenile into custody in the area of East Street in Hebron when the juvenile appeared on East Street, driving a 2001 Mercedes E320 that had been reported stolen in Manchester.
A Manchester officer tried to box the car in a private driveway, but the juvenile backed the vehicle up, then drove forward and hit the officer's door, causing minor injury to the officer, state troopers said.
The officer, who was in uniform, was standing between the open car door and the driver's compartment of the unmarked police vehicle when it happened, police said.
The juvenile then sped off and onto Interstate 384 West, police said.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the vehicle involved, a black 2001 Mercedes E320 with CT plates, AH98067, is asked to call Troop K at (860) 465-5400.
