Suspect convinces motorist to aid his escape 

This slick suspect tried to dupe a good Samaritan into helping him flee cops, police said.

A 20-year-old man who was known to police as “combative” and had a warrant for arrest was approached Sunday by an officer when he fled. The officer caught up to the combative creep, who struggled and freed himself from the officer’s grip.

Upon escaping police, the clever con-man convinced a passing motorist to let him in his car because “someone was after him.” The motorist quickly realized the people “after him” were the cops and stopped his car, police said.

Numerous officers soon responded to the area, and after a second, brief struggle, the suspect was taken into custody. He was booked for his warrant and new crimes of resisting and delaying arrest.

The arresting officer injured his ankle during the melee, police said.
