Capt. Casey Moilanen says the woman was given a ride to her apartment by a male friend around 12:30 AM. Moments after they arrived, the car was hit by an unknown object. Moilanen says they decided to go to another site where the woman got out.

As the man began driving away, his car was suddenly rammed by another vehicle in the area of 2nd Ave and 11th St NE. He was rammed an unknown number of times before he made his way to a convenience store where he called 911.

Moilanen says officers located and arrested the suspect, identified as 22-year-old Juan Perez-Cruz. He is facing possible charges of criminal damage to property and felony assault.

Moilanen says the man driving the car he rammed was shaken up but not hurt.

There is no word on how much damage was done to his vehicle.
