ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A man who rammed a vehicle into an Albuquerque police car and then barricaded himself in a home now is in custody.
Albuquerque police say 23-year-old Jonathan Zottnieck climbed out of a window and was arrested behind the home yesterday afternoon.
They say he's facing multiple charges including suspicion of aggravated assault on a peace officer and residential burglary.
Police originally responded to a call about a suspicious situation near Richmond and Indian School about 11:20 a.m.
One man at the scene was carrying a handful of what appeared to be stripped copper.
Police say the suspect intentionally rammed into the officer's police vehicle and fled on foot.
They say an 18-year-old woman was taken into custody at the scene, but she hasn't been booked into jail yet.
